All participants must apply to take part in this project. There are places only for 20. Applicants will be interviewed on Zoom after they complete an application form.
Young people are invited to apply for this project from youth theatres in Ireland, migration and asylum support organisations, DEIS schools, youth clubs and projects in Ireland.
For those young people who are not yet ready to audition, but who would like to, we will offer a preparatory path – with access to a youth theatre, attending English language classes, and preparation for PLC Performing Arts Courses.
More intensive preparation will be offered to those who are emotionally ready, who have the required level of English, and who have some experience of acting or of participating in drama.
The project will offer blended learning methods. One-to-one work will be carried out by weekly, one-hour Zoom sessions, with occasional in-person sessions where safety and distance allow. Group sessions will ideally be held in person, where distance and safety allow. There will be regular interaction using email, WhatsApp and other media, and there will be webinars on various aspects of auditioning.
There are three stages to the application process:
Stage 1: Application form (May-September)
Stage 2: Interview (August-Mid September)
Stage 3: Creative assessment (Late September)
The application for Dréimire 2021-2022 is now open. The application will close for further submissions on Friday, September 10th at 5pm.
Participants will be selected and contacted by October 1st, 2021.
