A VERY SUCCESSFUL EVENT!
Gathering 2011 was a great success and TYA Ireland would like to extend it’s congratulations and thanks to Barnstorm Theatre Company for hosting us and on the companies 20th anniversary year.
The main objectives of the conference was to offer those working in Theatre for Young Audiences a unique opportunity to examine practice, the need for future sustainability of the work and the long-term development of the sector.
Gathering 2011 presented four new shows and two works-in-progress.
Representing diversity in style and form from both sides of the border was Graffiti, Cahoots NI, Replay, Barnstorm, Moonshine Theatre and Púca Puppets. A series of three seminars interrogated and explored themes surrounding theatre for young audiences in Ireland. Panellists representing a wide range of relevant perspectives and interests were present in these seminars - proceedings were recorded and we will have these available in due course. www.gathering.ie
