Space Upstairs



A workshop for actors, performers and theatre-makers. THEATREclub are offering a 3-day workshop for actors to coincide with their new show THE FAMILY. This workshop will explore THEATREclub’s unique method of performance making, focusing on the space between fiction and reality.

Over three days, they will explore the various elements of creating work in the style they have developed throughout their productions, working only with what you bring and learning to trust how interesting that is.

Some of the work will include improvisation, working with a game structure and allowing to trust the freedom to explore. Working this way adds to the actors process as relationships begin to develop within a group of actors that are grounded in trust and security, the building blocks of ensemble building.

The workshops will be led by THEATREclub’s own Grace Dyas and Shane Byrne (cast member of THE FAMILY) and will be joined each day by a different memeber of the cast of THE FAMILY.


If interested, please email THEATREclub at The subject line should be “How we made THE FAMILY” and simply tell us why you would like to take part in the workshop. The workshop will run from 23 – 25 January, 11am to 4pm daily and the cost of taking part is 80. Feel free to email us if you have any questions about the workshop.

The deadline for applications is Thursday January 19th.

THEATREclub are part of PROJECT CATALYST, an initiative of Project Arts Centre.

There were sceptics and critical voices addressing both the context of the development of the Temple Bar Cultural Quarter and spectacle-oriented, consumer-driven cultural production which some feared Project’s subversive spirit might fall prey to after its refurbishment. An anniversary at most times is an important opportunity to reflect, especially during such transformative moments as those we are living through right now.…

Hi there,  How are you doing today? We hope you and your family are staying safe and sane during these strange days. We've been thinking about how we stay connected. It's not easy. Some of us have to stay indoors all the time. Others mostly all of the time. We've had letters and postcards through our letterboxes that made us smile. We've got emotional sending messages of support and solidarity to others. Some of us have wifi, Social Media and laptops. Some of us don't. So, we're starting LOCKDOWN LETTERS. To try to stay connected to as many of our…
