These are by photographer Ben Morrison from our recent OIKOS project in the Duncan Dance Centre in Athens, Greece. The project explored the princliples that 30 young people from Crooked House (Ireland) and Kinitiras (Greece) believe underpin their sense of home. They worked with artists Georgina Kakoudaki, Peter Hussey, Paris Erotokritou and Ionna Kampylafka to create performances from their reflections. OIKOS was funded by the European Union under the Erasmus+ programme.

New Work: Dance Yourself Clean

As part of the Arts Council's Young Ensembles Scheme, we were awarded funding to work with renowned choreographer Ciarán Gray.

This collaboration resulted in the creation of Dance Yourself Clean, an exploration of the second law of thermodynamics and the idea of sustaining difficult relationships.

Dance Yourself Clean is a part of a wider exploration of the aforementioned themes in a new upcoming piece called 'Things Fall Apart', created by Kildare Youth Theatre's Senior Ensemble.

Upcoming Project: The Merchant of Venice Teaser

Launcelot Gobbo (Sinéad Mooney) is a budding playwright constantly playing out scenarios, correcting versions of dialogue, and observing the behaviour of those around her - all the better to include them in her latest draft. She was once a boy, before moving to Venice from the countryside to pursue her dreams of being a professional playwright. Now she finds she has to take what work she can, even if it is in the House of Shylock, where she can find little time to write.

UPCOMING SHOW: Find A Partner!, Friday May 28th

UPCOMING SHOW:

This Friday, the 28th of May, Kildare Youth Theatre presents our 2021 Connections Theatre Festival performance, Miriam Battye's new play Find A Partner!

Find A Partner! is a play set in a dystopian gameshow, where if participants don't match up and find love, they'll meet a grizzly demise. A commentary on modern society's obsession with gameshows, Find A Partner! holds a mirror up to our society and makes us question our priorities: a tragi-comedy for our times.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, Find A Partner! will be screened online for 24 hours, on the Riverbank website, starting 6pm this Friday, May 28th.

Read more about the upcoming play on our website here: https://www.kildareyouththeatre.com/single-post/upcoming-show-find-a-partner-friday-may-28th

Alternatively, tickets can be reserved free of charge on the Riverbank website here: https://www.riverbank.ie/connections-2021/

Occasional Lockdown Pieces: Stateless

Now that our Project Showcase series has concluded, we turn our attention to 'Occasional Lockdown Pieces', a series of short videos produced by this seasons' Kildare Youth Theatre volunteers.

The latest video, called 'Stateless' was produced by one of our Spanish European Solidarity Corps volunteers, Koldo. Stateless is a personal reflection on what home means to us, and what happens to 'home' when it moves from one country to another.

Stateless is featured in our latest Reading Room Blog. Check it out below 👇

Project Showcase: Proposed Cultural Centre for Young People

We conclude our Projects Showcase by looking at a proposed Cultural Centre for Young People which Crooked House received funding for a related feasibility study in 2018.

This centre would be a place where young people can make theatre, music, film and art, and also where they can learn, be creative, and start small enterprises. It would be a multi-purpose centre, ideally shared by a number of organisations who work directly with young people.

General information

OUTREACH & COMMISSIONED WORK We are commissioned to develop theatre programmes to work specifically with non-actors. These usually have a justice, equality or human rights dimension. A typical project would consist of 15 two-hour workshops with a group leading to a public performance created by the group with our help. The theme of the performance emerges from the group during the workshops: it is often a means used by a group to communicate their reflections/experiences/situations to a wider audience (and particularly to an audience of people who are implicated in the theme). For example, we worked with community groups in Dublin who were effected by su***de. The group developed a piece of theatre which showed how, in their experience, the structure of educational, social and health systems mitigated against effective help reaching their friends and families. This project was called 'Life Force' and was an initiaitive of Blue Drum. Another project was with Irish Traveller women over a period of two months to create a drama which showed how crucial misunderstandings can arise when Traveller women interact with statutory services and organisations. The performance was shown to regional state agencies and followed by a facilitated forum expanding on the issue. Other outreach and commissioned work can involve organising week-long theatre projects and festivals with young people. Or we are asked to work with agencies (such as Trocaire) on their Human Rights Summer School. Smaller projects can be delivering drama and film workshops to youth clubs, schools or community groups.

Crooked House mentored the artists and projects and made a film of the process which was shown at The Adult Learner’s Festival in Kildare in February. The Festival was also an exhibition of all the art created during the project.
