More about Kate.


I went to see the following plays/Street theatre.

- Crowman

- Asking For It

- Half Light

- Union Black

- Kamchatka

- The Numbered.


By seeing such an eclectic mix of art over 3 days, I have discovered new ways to approach making and critiquing work, whether it may be site-specific, audience engagement, outdoors or children’s theatre. As an actor/aerialist, it made me look at the overall production value such as lighting, set and not just text and performance.

I learned that Cork Midsummer offers an incredibly diverse and exciting programme of dance, theatre, music, and art. I also learned a great deal of certain arts forms that I am not normally exposed to on a regular basis. Good quality children’s theatre such as Half Light is incredibly accessible to a variety of audiences and not just young audiences. By watching Kamchatka I learned that live street theatre can be incredibly engaging and exciting. It was incredible to watch actors work together so closely and make extremely bold and spontaneous choices collectively.

It was inspiring to see such important work such as Asking for it being premiered in The Everyman Theatre. It was incredibly relevant and a real depiction of Irish society’s reaction to rape culture. It was incredibly moving and powerful production by Landmark Productions.

I would most definitely recommend DELVE to other ISACS members. If you are interested in immersing yourself in a multidisciplinary festival with other passionate artists - then this is a Festival for you!
