About the Event

Final year students will showcase their presentations on Contemporary Irish Theatre and Performance Health in the Foyle Arts Building on Thursday 25th May.

Contemporary Irish Theatre

Contemporary Irish Theatre looks in detail at contemporary theatre practice in Ireland on both sides of the Border, and places it in a range of relevant discursive and theoretical contexts. Students read from the work of a wide range of contemporary and canonical playwrights. This year the module was primarily concerned with violence in Irish theatre: comic violence, spoken violence, and violence performed on stage, as well as other kinds of live performance like parades, commemorations, and other public events.

Performance and Health 

This module provides students with the opportunity to explore performance as a means of enhancing wellbeing; of challenging stigma and stereotypes; and of promoting awareness of health issues. Students examine specific selected examples of therapeutic and performance practices engaging with issues of health and wellbeing. Practical exploration allows students to engage with the formal techniques from within, while independent research and seminar discussion provides the opportunity to contextualise and analyse the practices encountered.
