Activate and Activate Junior Update
Both Activate and Activate Junior are back in full swing after their summer break.
Kim Molloy has been woking with Activate Junior on her Artstrain work experience and she has delivered some fantastic workshops focusing on improvisation.
They received some development funding from NYCI and have begun script development workshops with playwright John McCarthy, who is an ex-Activate Member. Between now and the end of term, John will work with Activate to develop two new scripts. They'll celebrate this work with a rehearsed reading before Christmas. One of their up and coming script writers is Ellie Menton, also an ex Activate member! Ellie wrote a short play for Activate which was performed as part of their production Backseat for the Cork Midsummer Festival.
Activate are taking a theatre trip close to home to see Graffiti Theatre Company’s production of Raymond Scannell’s new play Generation Revolution in November. The show is commissioned for teenagers and is being rehearsed in Graffiti (Activate's home) so It’ll be a great opportunity to get involved, meet the makers and see a great show!
