Becoming Saoirse

  • Performance

See a new theatre piece inspired by the imaginations of children from across the county, Becoming Saoirse!

Saoirse is a dragon. She is a small colourful dragon who loves to sing and fly. One day there is a flying competition in her local town. The big, strong dragons from all around gather for the competition.  Saoirse is intimidated and doesn’t want to participate in the games. Her dear friend Creid (believe in Irish) encourages her to take part. 

Conceptual performance artist Aine O’Brien has written a theatre piece entitled Becoming Saoirse,  inspired by the imaginations of the children in the community.

Children from King Thomond Direct Provision Centre Lisdoonvarna, St. Fachnan National School, Kilfenora and Mol an Óige Steiner National School, Ennistymon, participated in workshops where they learned all aspects of theatre production and worked together to create a finished piece of theatre based on the story of Becoming Saoirse. They will showcase the final theatre production of Becoming Saoirse on 11 June.

Children and families are invited to attend the performance of this show created by children, for children, on Saturday 11 June at 12pm in Teach Ceoil, Ennistymon.
