Shamefully I forgot to post information up on the Triskel Development Centre Talks yesterday so if anyone is reading this you’ve already missed half of it. Thankfully you can catch two panel discussions tomorrow.
The talks have been organised by Corcadorca Theatre Company who are running the development centre in the Triskel Arts Centre, Cork City. It’s a great initiative that gives theatre makers the opportunity to use a free space for one week, free of charge, to experiment, play, create and fail. At the end of the week they are then obliged to show their work in progress to an audience. It’s a fantastic resource for Cork City and a good way to meet people and exchange ideas.
Anyway, to what you missed.
Today there was a panel discussion on where can developed work go?
The panel was made up of representatives from venues/festivals in Cork city who were discussing how work can be staged or programmed at their venues/festivals
