Cruinniú na N-óg 2020
A Day of Youthful Creativity
In 2019, TADA! Theatre School participated in Cruinniú NA N-o3G for the first time ever, running theatre workshops in Graignamanagh and Thomastown, Kilkenny.
Following the workshops, parents were invited to come and watch the drama!!!
2020 is a little bit different
Because of "the virus" things have been changed up a little and we are making a movie..online...on ZOOM!!!
Using Zoom, When Heroes Collide is the chance for children to get creative and clever online with their heroes and it seems like kids already have a very important mission; to destroy a virus that is taking over the universe.
This virus was created by a crazy Granny in a pot of gooey beef stew. This grotesque granny also uses her dentures as a weapon according to character creator, Áine Bambrick.
Every superhero movie needs a super villain and it’s clear that being a super villain is a super popular option for some. This exciting movie will be a great battle between these two camps. Will earth survive? Will our favourite superheroes make it after being struck down by this abominable stew? Will anyone ever eat stew again?
The script will be devised online over the coming weeks, with filming happening both on zoom and remotely by children at home. Our super bunch will learn about character and story structure while having great craic with their pals and TADA! creative director, Gillian Grattan.
With characters such as Hand Sanitiser Girl, gymnast Simone Biles , Pink Panther, Slim Shady, Dog Girl and some bloke by the name of Donald Trump , this project is sure to be a lot of fun for all involved. We even have our very own music composer, Will O’ Gorman who has the potential be the next Ennio Morricone.
TADA! Theatre school is all about children creating and performing their own scripts and When Heroes Collide is no different. This movie is sure to be a big hit when it broadcasts on Zoom on the 13th of June.
What on earth is Cruinniú na N-óg?
Ireland is the first, and only, country in the world to have a national day of free creativity for children and young people under 18.
Cruinniú na nÓg is a flagship initiative of the Creative Ireland Programme’s Creative Youth plan to enable the creative potential of children and young people. The inaugural Cruinniú na nÓg took place on 23rd June 2018 with over 500 events taking place in cities, towns and villages across the country.
