Roscommon Arts Centre is delighted to announce that Fregoli Theatre Company Company will be our theatre company in residence at the arts centre during 2020. The residency is supported by the Arts Council of Ireland and the Creative Ireland Roscommmon “Wings” programme and gets underway this Spring.
The residency is part of Roscommon Arts Centre’s ongoing commitment to supporting professional artists at all stages of their careers. The company, though Galway based have a strong Roscommon connection – its artistic director Maria Tivnan and Jarlath Tivnan, writer and performer, are both from Boyle and their rural upbringing and Roscommon itself has had a very significant impact on the company’s theatre making.
Exploring themes of “finding home”; the residency will incorporate three major elements: training and development; provision of community workshops and idea exchange, with the final phase focusing on a short work in progress style performance.
Updates will be posted on social media and on the NEWS section of Roscommon Arts Centre’s website throughout the year and as the residency develops.
