Síolta to take part in C.In.E Sineu Irish residency 2018
The successful applicant is Síolta Collective, a new Irish Circus collective consisting of six ISACS members who came together with a mutual vision to create a high-level ground-based circus show, directed by Paddy Waters: Jacob Anderson (Ire) - Acrobat & juggling, Aoife Raleigh (Ire) - Strong woman & acrobat, Tony Mahon (Ire) - Juggler & acrobat, Gracie Marshall (Ire) - Hula hoop & acrobat, Henrik Gard (Swe) - Acrobat, and Ali Stanger (UK) - Acrobat &
As individuals, they are all actively involved in the Irish circus scene, contributing to Galway Community Circus, Dublin Circus Project, Belfast Circus School and Cork's Circus Factory, organising 'The Irish Acrobatic Convention' and performing with Tumble Circus and Fanzini Productions.
The new circus collective will benefit from C.In.E free use of the space and free accommodation in a house at the village, an Irish Aerial Creation Centre (IACC) total grant of €1,200 towards the overall costs of the residency and the Irish Street Arts, Circus and Spectacle Network (ISACS) mentorship and support in any application writing to source other funds towards this residency.
"In this residency, we will concentrate on the creative and theatrical elements of our work. We will work on firmly establishing the unique culture of our group and we will select the theme of our piece and begin to explore it in relation to our techniques. This time will give us the space to find the subject of the conversation we wish to have with our audiences and with each other, we hope to grow together in our dissection of the subject and in our understanding of our company"
Their first work in progress presentation will take place on Friday 26th October, 8 pm at Centre d’Investigacio Escenica (C.In.E) Sineu. Pin the date in your diaries!
