Upstate Theatre

Europe, Ireland, Drogheda
Art discipline: Theater, Film
Participated in ICAF in: 2014

- The Far Side (Upstate productions, Ireland, 2013), an interactive documentary combined with live performance which was recommended in September 2013 by the Irish Times with an unprecedented five stars. Dublin Fringe Festival director Róise Goan described it as follows: “Unique voices brought alive by beautifully crafted film-making and an intimate live experience from one of Ireland’s most exciting theatre companies.” 

- Upstate Theatre from Drogheda, Ireland is also a partner in an artist-in-residency with Rotterdams Wijktheater. Both companies are very interested in working on site, but employ different methods and performance aesthetics. In the weeks prior to ICAF-6, artists from both organizations will work together on a project in the southside of Rotterdam. Lodging for this Rotterdam-Irish collaboration will be provided by Atelier Tarwewijk.
