Galway Community Circus - Cirque du Gaillimh

This Spring, forty youth circus members aged 12-20 years from Galway Community Circus will create and star in a new production entitled Cirque du Gaillimh. Over the coming weeks, the performers will build their show while learning about different aspects of show production. They will work alongside Belfast-based, non-traditional circus company Tumble Circus, and music school Maoin Cheoil na Gaillimhe, to create a show inspired by the magic of big top circus. The audience will be immersed in the atmosphere of a modern circus show under our incredible Big Top tent, as acrobats, jugglers, clowns and trapeze artists take to the stage.

Cirque du Gaillimh will be performed in a big top tent in Galway City with a live youth orchestra as part of the Galway Theatre Festival on April 22nd-23rd.
This production would not be possible without the support of the Arts Council Young Ensemble Scheme.

Dates:
22 - 23 April
Venue:
The Big Top Tent, Galway City

by Heiner Muller

Benji
devised with some text by Claire Dowie

Benji is about a young girl and her imaginary friend.  Benji is wilful and naughty.   But they are best friends.

County Wexford Youth Theatre - Doublebill: The Three Golden Hairs and Showtime

THE THREE GOLDEN HAIRS
adapted from the Brother’s Grimm

The youngest CWYT group perform a contemporary take of this classic fairy tale in their own inimitable fashion. 


SHOWTIME
adapted from Tim Etchell’s script

Narrated by a clown with a fake dynamite bomb strapped to her chest, the piece begins with a naïve text describing just what a good piece of theatre should be. From this amateurish advice about simple scenery, good casting and dress rehearsals, Showtime soon decays into a chaos of game shows, a dog that talks about suicide and a series of insistent questions asked of a dying thug as he lies bleeding outside a Wendy house. Performed by a cast aged between 12 and 14 years.

Dates:
24 & 25 May, 8pm
Venue:
Wexford Arts Centre
