An Crann 2008
Dráma Nua le Liam O Muirthile agus Aisteoirí Ghobnatan
Scríobh an file agus scríbhneor cáiliúl, Liam O Muirthile, dráma nua ‘ An Crann’ le grúpa pobal Aisteoirí Ghobnatan, san Earrach 2008.
Bhí an scríobhneor Liam O Muirthile i mbun oibre le Aisteoirí Ghobnatan – atá lonnaithe san Ionad Cultúrtha, Baile Mhúirne, i rith Mi na Samhna agus Mi na Nollag 2007. Tháinig an dá ‘ thaobh’ le chéile –O Muirthile agus Aisteoirí Ghobnatan – thar roinnt deireadh seachtainí – chun a gcuid smaointí a roinnt, - scileanna, taithí agus cumas cumadóireachta. As an próicéas seo, tháinig smaointí úra agus nuálaíocha a bhí ansan mar bunús don scríobhneor, O Muirthile, chun dráma nua-cumtha a scríobh - 'An Crann'.
Thainig maoiniú don togra ó Ealaion na Gaeltachta agus ó Choiste Ghairmoideachais Chontae Chorcaí.
Well known poet and writer Liam O Muirthile worked with local amateur theatre group, Aisteoirí Ghobnatan, during Spring 2008 to create a new play “An Crann”, which was performed in the Ionad Cultúrtha on 25th April 2008.
Liam O Muirthile worked with Aisteoirí Ghobnatan – an amateur drama group based in the Ionad Cultúrtha, Baile Mhúirne - from Novembe 2007 to early 2008. This collaboration involved the two groups – O Muirthile and Aisteoirí Ghobnatan coming together over several weekends to share ideas, skills, experience and talents. These encounters produced innovative and creative ideas and the subsequent sharing of talents and ideas enabled Ó Muirthile to produce a new play - 'An Crann'. Rehearsals began with Aisteoiri Ghobnatan in the Ionad Cultúrtha in early springtime, under the direction of Liam O Mathuna, and the play was premiered in the Ionad Cultúrtha on 25th April.
Both Liam O Mathuna and Aisteoirí Ghobnatan are all fluent Irish speakers, and are no strangers to this arena, as they have been the recipients of many awards over the years with plays such as ‘An Triail’. This project was certainly a wonderful opportunity for Aisteoirí Ghobnatan to work closely with such a professional artist, such as Liam O Muirthile.
This project was funded by Ealaion na Gaeltachta and Cork County Vocational Education Committee.
