Master Class: My Ireland, Our Identity: A Theater Exchange Across the Atlantic (Spring 2018)
Wednesday, May 30, 2018 at 6:30PM

Irish Arts Center
553 West 51st Street
New York, NY 10019

My Ireland, Our Identity is a theater-exchange across the Atlantic exploring the central question: What does being Irish (-American) mean to you?

It will take place in 2 sessions on Wednesday evenings in both Dublin and New York City on May 30 and June 6, 2018.
If you would like to attend the Dublin sessions please contact to register.

*Price includes both sessions. By registering for the May 30th session, you are automatically signed up for the June 6th session as well.

In the first session, groups will independently create work exploring the question through games, theatre exercises, group dialogue, and reflection. The work created will then be exchanged with the international partner group.

In the second session, groups will look at their international partners' work and identify common themes between the two. The groups will then explore these similarities further to create a final piece that attempts to answer the central question.

Outlandish Theater Platform will facilitate the Dublin-based sessions and Irish Arts Center's Jessie Reilly will facilitate the New York City session.

The sessions are open to anyone that identifies at all as Irish, Irish-American, part Irish, part of the Irish diaspora or is interested in exploring the central question in general. All ages are welcome, though dialogue will not be strictly censored for age appropriate content.
