Duisigh Youth Theatre News
Duisigh is a Youth Drama group based in Tralee for 13-18 year olds. It aims to enable young people to explore their world using drama and theatre skills. It has carried out both studio and street performances through the group devising its own script with a strong use of improvisation.
The group, now in its third year, is devising a Theatre in Education piece which is due to tour schools in Tralee in the autumn 2015. The present Drama tutor describes it as, "A Theatre in Education piece which focuses on 4 young people dealing with the pressures of everyday life and the effects these pressures have on them and their families. The range of issues they face are deeply personal...Through the play we see how each of them learn to cope with their situation and find a better way to live as they face up to the challenges."
In March Alan King from NAYD carried out a joint workshop with Duisigh and the Free Radicals Youth Theatre in Tralee. Duisigh has also had one of its members involved in the Young Critics Programme which she has gained an enormous amount from and other members took part recently in a group audition for the National Youth Theatre in Cork with NAYD which they also enjoyed enormously. We also look forward to new members joining the group this September!
