Tá Fíbín ar ais ar camchuairt náisiúnta leis “An Triail” i 2017 le leagan dírithe go speisialta ar mheánscoileanna agus ar churaclam na hArdteistiméireachta. Bí ag súil le puipéid, le maisc, le hardshiamsaíocht, agus le híomhánna chomh láidir go mbeidh tú ag iarraidh ceisteanna a fhreagairt faoi agus staidéar a dhéanamh air!
Déanann Fíbín an dráma a shuíomh i gcomhthéacs na sochaí comhaimseartha. Is mian le Fíbín na ceisteanna a dhéanann mic léinn agus múinteoirí a chrá a phlé ar shlí nuálach agus spreagthach. Baineann siad an aidhm seo amach trí theicnicí ilmheánacha a úsáid agus cuirtear carachtair an dráma inár láthair mar dhaoine ar chóir dúinn bá a bheith againn leo. Bronntar tuiscint úr ar shrianta shochaí na hÉireann i dtréimhse na 1950dí agus nochtar fo-théacs and dráma dá réir.
Fíbín are back with a national tour of "An Triail" in 2017 with a version specially focused on secondary schools and the Leaving Certificate curriculum. Expect puppets, masks, entertainment, and such engaging visuals that you’ll actually WANT to answer questions on it!
Bringing a seemingly outdated plot into the context of our modern society, Fíbín seek to address issues highlighted by both teachers and students alike. Any difficulties in relating to the characters as the drama unfolds will be banished, as we seek to help comprehend the confinements of 1950’s Ireland and see beyond the black and white nature of the dialogue through the use of multi-media techniques.
Fíbín is Ireland’s largest and most active Irish-language Theatre company. We stage new and classic Irish writing in a creative way and in a unique style. We continue to set new standards in Irish language theatre and create new audiences for theatre by producing engaging and critically acclaimed productions as well as launching and piloting innovative new ideas and technologies that reach and engage our audience. Fíbín are leaders and set the standards in Irish language drama. We nurture the audiences of the future and shape the way they perceive Irish language theatre in a fun and positive way!
Our mission is to create theatre audiences and makers of the future with our engaging theatrical experiences. We strongly believe that it is important to give young people of all ages a positive experience in theatre as, for some, the school years may be the only time young people will see live theatre.
