JANUARY PROGRAMME


JANUARY PROGRAMME

In 2016 theatre maker Paul Curley was awarded Roscommon Arts Centre’s “First Edition Commission” to create new work for young audiences as part of the Bookworms Festival and “Roadworks” was conceived. Since then, the production has enjoyed further periods of development with the support of Theatre Lovett and Irish Theatre Institute and this season, we are delighted to welcome it back home for a further installment.

SCHOOLS

SHOW

Mac the Road Engineer is digging at the crossroads until unexpectedly he finds a rare and beautiful artifact. Will he turn it in or will he keep it all for himself? A visual feast with road-signs, music and..a wolf! In collaboration with theatre artist and director Andy Manley, with music by Jack Cawley and movement by Emma O’Kane, ROADWORKS digs up an exciting new telling of a very old tale.

THURSDAY 18th JANUARY | 10am & 12pm | Free Admission | Suitable for ages 4 - 7

FEBRUARY PROGRAMME

Michael Keegan-Dolan | Teac Damsa Presented by Nomad Theatre Network “A stunning piece of theatre...compelling...disturbing and utterly beautiful” - The Irish Times “utterly rooted in Ireland, it is utterly original, it is utterly brilliant.” The Financial Times The Guardian

FEBRUARY PROGRAMME Following a critically acclaimed international tour that included The Sydney Opera House, Saddlers Well’s London, Denmark and Moscow, the smash hit of the 2016 Dublin Theatre Festival and winner of the Best Production and Best Costume Design at the 2017 Irish Times Theatre Awards makes a much anticipated return to Ireland for a tour that includes performances at both the Abbey Theatre and Roscommon Arts Centre. From the imagination of one of Ireland’s foremost dance and theatre makers, comes a magical adaptation of the most famous of all story ballets. Michael Keegan-Dolan has forged a searing new vision for this beloved tale, creating a world of magical realism, powerful imagery and potent storytelling. With a cast of 13 international performers, including Mikel Murfi, and a musical score that combines Nordic and Irish traditional music from Slow Moving Clouds; this Swan Lake is rooted in the midlands of Ireland, where ancient mythology and the modern world collide. The result is a Swan Lake for our time and a stunning debut for Teac Damsa. Don’t miss it! *Contains adult themes

CATHERINE WHEELS THEATRE COMPANY

WHITE BY ANDY MANLEY

Welcome to the beautifully strange world of White. Full of birdsong and birdhouses, it gleams and dazzles and shines in the night. Two friends look after the birds and make sure the eggs stay safe. We watch, we help. The world is bright, ordered and white. But high up in the trees, all is not white. Colour appears. First red... then yellow... then blue... White is a playful, highly visual show for little ones – a perfect first time theatre experience.

TUESDAY 27th FEBRUARY | 10am & 12pm | €5 | Ages 2 – 4 year olds
