A collaboration between The Lir Academy and the Abbey Theatre which aims to introduce young women to careers in lighting, sound and stage management.
The Dock is delighted to present Women in Technical Theatre a collaboration between The Lir National Academy of Dramatic Art at Trinity College Dublin and the Abbey Theatre which aims to introduce young women to careers in lighting, sound and stage management.
The purpose of the roadshow is to engage female pupils aged 14-16 years from secondary level schools throughout Ireland by presenting and facilitating workshops geared towards increasing awareness of technical theatre, stage management and the importance that these departments play in the professional creation of a live performance.
These workshops will be designed and overseen by industry professionals who lead technical departments at The Lir Academy. The performance aspect of the workshop will be led by an Abbey Theatre drama facilitator with experience of working with young people.
Supported by Bank of America, Access and Learning Partner of the Abbey Theatre.
