There are a number of ways in which you can collaborate with us – we would love to involve you in what in we do!

1. Education:

We know from experience that price is a major deciding factor in schools choosing to attend a play. There is a ticket price plus transport costs (essential in remote areas of Ireland) to consider.

  • €30 will bring a child to and from a Fíbín production.
  • €1,500 would enable 50 children to a Fíbín production. That’s an entire school in some cases!

2. New Irish Writing:

We believe that there is a direct link between audiences and the availability of new Irish language writing – you can’t have one without the other! There is a shortage of new Irish-language writing. A bursary would offer motivation for Irish language writers to pen new work for Young People with a view to the work being produced by Fíbín.
An annual bursary of €3,000 would enable Fíbín to work with a new writer to create a piece of new Irish-language writing.

3. Tent:

puballfibinOur Saddlespan performance tent means we can tour to parts of the country that we could not previously access.
Our highly visible and transportable tent provides an excellent branding opportunity for the right partner.

4. Developing Emerging Talent:

In recent years a number of courses have been established throughout Ireland in Theatre and the Performing Arts. In the past, Fíbín has given puppeteering workshops to 3rd levels students as part of their course modules on a non-formal basis. We also take theatre production students on placement from 3rd level institutions, again, on a non-formal basis. We welcome mutually beneficial collaborations with 3rd level institutions.

5. Technology:

Fíbín was the first theatre company in Ireland to have an iPhone App. However, it is not available for Android and with app technology changing and developing all the time it is already in need of re-energising. We also embrace the use of technology in our theatre work through the use of projections, and a recent video-mapping project.
We are seeking a suitable partner to help develop the use of technology with our productions.
