Dublin 15 Youth Theatre presents two new works of poetry that reflect the lives of young people living in Dublin 15 today.
Both pieces were created by the members while working with poet, performer and playwright FeliSpeaks aka Felicia Olusanya, and actor and facilitator Emily Matthews.
FeliSpeaks guided the group through thought-provoking discussions, meditation practices and word association games before introducing some of her own work and the work of others to give inspiration. After composing eight individual poems the group decided to create two collectives with four members in each. A symbiotic relationship evolved where both collectives thrived with the support of each other and guidance from Felicia and wrote two unique poems. Further consideration was given to the physical presentation and translation of these works to an audience. The group worked with filmmaker Kilian Waters of Arcade Film to create these empowering visual and audio works which we hope you enjoy in celebration of Cruinniú na nÓg 2021.
This is a partnership project between Draíocht’s D15 Youth Theatre, Fingal County Council Arts Office.
This pre-recorded event will be available to view on Saturday, June 12th. For more information email email@example.com
