FOREGROUNDS 2017 - Drama and Theatre Studies Final Year Productions
FOREGROUNDS 2017 showcases the theatre-making talents of final year single and joint honours students in Drama & Theatre Studies at UCC.
A theatre evening in two parts, FOREGROUNDS 2017 presents 21st Century adaptations of ‘Alice in Wonderland’ by Lewis Carroll, The Tain, Orpheus and Eurydice, ‘The Canterville Ghost’ by Oscar Wilde and a piece of documentary film adapted from the real life experience of a lung transpantee. Each piece was selected based on the relevance of its timeless thematic quality and of how such themes are mirrored in contemporary culture and society today. Five different stories examine the gauntlet of human existence from motherhood to near death, from acient history to contemporary issues, through people, puppets, shadow and words, spoken and sung. Each of the five stories is presented by different groups/perfromers with their own unique aesthetic and approach to theatre making showcasing a wealth of young emerging Irish talent.
