Granary Theatre 2022-23 Academic Year
The Granary Theatre is a key teaching and learning asset and a critical outreach and community engagement organism within UCC, whose future is important to faculty, staff, students: especially to students in the School of Film, Music and Theatre; to the performance-based student societies; and to the wider artistic and audience community of Cork.
The will of the university is to renew, develop, and maximise the Granary’s presence as a beacon of teaching, learning, research, and public engagement for Theatre; for the School of Film, Music and Theatre; and for the wider university.
However, the Granary will be unable to function as normal as we emerge from the pandemic. The combination of
1. Dramatically reduced resourcing, and
2. The cost and complexity of putting adequate control measures in place to receive external audience
mean that for 2022-23, the Granary will only be able to be used as a classroom and rehearsal space by the Department of Theatre. The floor space in the Granary will enable socially distanced practice to take place – where and when our risk assessments allow such to happen.
Limited, teaching-related performance events for small audiences may take place, coordinated by the Department of Theatre.
The Department will dialogue with and support as best it can the historically significant Dramat and other performance-related student societies during this time, but the Granary will unfortunately not be able to provide a performance venue for these societies until further notice.
