Next up in our series is Síofra Nic Liam who is one of our Dublin Youth Theatre volunteers. So THE 24 HOUR PLAYS is another opportunity that DYT offers its members to take part in the theatre experience albeit at breakneck speed!
Have you taken part in THE 24 HOUR PLAYS before?
What is the most memorable dramatic experience you have had, and why?
My first year one act in DYT because it was the first time I was involved in devising something, and the first time we (myself and the other two girls in the cast) felt like we were treated with the same respect as adults instead of having everything dictated by a drama teacher.
When did you first know you wanted to be involved in the performing arts?
When I was a child I always knew I wanted to be an actor, but after joining DYT in 2008 I became interested in more aspects of theatre.
Who (living or dead) would you most like to work with?
Brendan Gleeson. I’ve always been a great fan of his.
Tell us a little about your next big project.
I’ve no big projects coming up now for myself, but I’m volunteering in collaborations and hoping to get to know people who I could work with in the future.
What are you anticipating the most about THE 24 HOUR PLAYS?
The hecticness of it all and fun kind of stress that comes with organising any event.
Sum up your feelings about THE 24 HOUR PLAYS in five words or less!
Very excited already!
Yup I know that feeling! Delighted to be working with you, Síofra!
