FULL Fathom Theatre Ensemble and artistic director, Marie McNamara are delighted with an invitation to perform their new work Exposition at Glór for the Ennis Street Festival next Wednesday.
Full Fathom Theatre began as Act Now..! in March 2014, with continuing weekly acting and theatre workshops in Glór for people with and without disability. It has evolved into an ongoing ensemble of actors in training, who have already performed two “works in progress” to invited audiences at Glór.
Exposition is Full Fathom’s debut public performance; the story of a journey into the unknown and finding the freedom to enter into that risky place and discover untold riches, courage and an enthusiasm that begs to be seen; an excavation into potential and a celebration of exposure;
As an experienced professional actor, theatre and arts and health practitioner and with an MA in drama-therapy, Marie is committed to the creation of quality theatre and the realisation of creative potential through equality, integration and the fostering of self-expression; with the emphasis always on ability, meaningful connection, imagination and fun.
To this end, Marie established Full Fathom Theatre Ensemble as a conduit to enable this vision to become reality.
“By bringing together people with and without disability to share and exchange ideas, skills, experiences and stories, Full Fathom seeks to make the art of theatre accessible to everyone and create unique productions that will offer audiences a new perspective,” Marie explains.
Marie said they received support from Gemma Carcaterra, director at Glór; Ana Bella Alvarez, Ennis Street Festival director and Clare County Council Arts Office.
