Theatre for Young Audiences Ireland will host a two-day symposium on the Role of Fairytale in Contemporary Theatre. A keynote speaker of international renown along with national and international theatre practitioners will explore the theme in light of professional theatre practice and artistic works in Ireland and abroad. Research papers on the topic will be invited from fellow members of of the International Theatre for Young Audiences Research Network, and a number of these will be presented at the symposium. Approximately 20 ASSETEJ centres from across Europe will also be in attendance.
Cardiff’s Theatr Iolo will present its production of Grimm Tales as a centre piece to the symposium.
