Tailtiu Theatre Company will continue their residency with Droichead for a further year in 2021. Set up by Barry Morgan and Cathal Thornton, the company devises and creates theatre and outreach programmes for children and young people. In 2020, they found themselves discarding their programme for the whole year, and embracing digital technology and platforms. Taking the early few months of lockdown in 2020 to reflect, they reimagined their artistic programme for the year.
Instead of live performances, they developed a radio play for Droichead’s podcast channel, two audio trails and a collaboration with Droichead Youth Theatre. All aimed at young audiences and families, these pieces were designed to encourage audiences to look at their hometown in a new way. This obviously differed from their original vision, but gave them a fantastic opportunity to adapt their ideas, way of thinking, and artistic process to be in line with the ever-changing Covid situation.
