An ensemble of performers with intellectual disability from St Christopher’s Services, Longford and the Visual Theatre Programme, Mermaid will devise a theatre piece with Gemma Gallagher (Shadowbox Theatre). Gemma, will guide and direct this ensemble of actors to create from the heart of the participants own reflections and experiences finding imaginative ways of sharing their story and challenging preconceptions of what it is to be ‘other’. This piece will be performed in Longford and Bray, as part of a collaboration between Backstage and Mermaid.
