The Arts Council of Ireland and Limerick City & County Council Culture & Arts Office have granted Limerick Youth Theatre (LYT), Co Limerick Youth Theatre (CoLYT) and Emerging Limerick Filmmakers (ELF) substantial awards to make devised pieces of theatre over the summer. The devised pieces will be shot ‘live’ in non-traditional theatre settings.
Entitled Méadú meaning growth, this new collaborative production between three Limerick youth arts companies is taking place throughout July & August with 50 young people devising (co-creating), rehearsing, and filming four brand new theatre-films. Four teams will create an original theatre-film with each group being led by graduates of MIC’s B.A. in Contemporary & Applied Theatre Studies course. Their work will then be filmed and edited by members of ELF, with screenings to take place in the Autumn.
