ABOUT THE RESIDENCY

Riverbank Arts Centre and Theatre Lovett Residency

Theatre Lovett’s initial residency at Riverbank Arts Centre began in 2012 and provided a number of educational and outreach opportunities for the community and wider county.  Working with schools, libraries and advocacy organisations, the residency developed initiatives that went out into the community, as well as inviting those participating into Riverbank.  The residency also enabled Theatre Lovett to use Riverbank as their creative base; developing new work, as well as rehearsing for their touring schedule.  We are delighted now to continue the residency and, with the support of both Kildare County Council and The Arts Council of Ireland, offer a rich and exciting range of training and outreach opportunities alongside developing new work for young audiences.

PRAISE FOR THEATRE LOVETT

“Theatre Lovett have a wonderful, interactive, caring and insightful approach. Their way of facilitating is inspiring. If this could happen regularly it would be a real gift to a lot of theatre makers. And not have to leave the country to do it!”
