TINY SHOWS: HATCH PROGRAMME 2018
Roscommon Arts Centre in association with Branar Téatar do Pháistí
“Hatch” has been developed by Roscommon Arts Centre as part of our ongoing Branar : Connect Initiative. Branar’s “Tiny Show” programme offers artists and theatre makers, time and space to explore and develop new skills and new work in a developmental context, facilitating the early stage development of ideas for new shows for young audiences at their Galway base.
Invitations have been extended to two of the Tiny Show 2018 participants to now spend a two week development period in Roscommon Arts Centre with access to the centre’s resources to “hatch” their Tiny Shows, with sharing performances of the work planned for December in Roscommon.
This year’s participants are Manuela Corbari and Karl Quinn.
