RESONATE - Final Year Performances, Department of Theatre

RESONATE showcases the theatre-making talents of final year joint and single honours students of the Department of Theatre, School of Music & Theatre, UCC

This year, UCC's emerging theatre-makers are presenting their brand-new, self-led stage adaptations at the Firkin Crane. The stories they have chosen to adapt are: Kew Gardens by Virginia Woolf, Undine by Friedrich de la Motte Fouqué, and The Paradise of Children, a version of Pandora's Box by Nathaniel Hawthorne. They have chosen the title RESONATE for their show as each of these stories resonates for them with the reality of our 21st century world, and all of the pieces somehow resonate with each other. The three stage adaptations comprising RESONATE are presented by three different ensembles, each with their own unique aesthetic and approach to theatre-making, showcasing a wealth of new emerging artistic talent. About the individual pieces: The Gardens by Broken Brooms Theatre Company Humans have a tendency to forget about connection; we have become so self-absorbed with our own problems, our own lives; we fail to see each other, and ourselves, for what we really are. We are creating this piece to reflect on ourselves as humans. Why we work a certain way, why we treat each other the way we do, what we can do to better ourselves as people, as a society, as individuals. Come to Me by Aquarium Undine is the girl from the sea, Bertie is trying to figure who to be. The world becomes land and the world becomes sea. Both blurring the lines between reality and fantasy.... Are You Sure? by Threaded Theatre Productions Are You Sure? is a four-woman ensemble piece of theatre. It is adapted from The Paradise of Children by Nathaniel Hawthorne, which tells the story of Pandora's Box. The piece explores the decisions that modern women in Ireland have to make, the resulting consequences, and the hope that is discovered through them.
