By April 13, 2021 April 15th, 2021 No Comments

We are delighted to announce that the recipients of the Remote Control residencies are Aifric Bruen, Eibhleann Caffrey, Siobhan Manson and Jenni Nikinmaa

Remote Control is an artist development programme ran in partnership with Brú Theatre, the Town Hall Theatre and Galway Dance Project.

Aifric Bruen is a performance artist and musician from Galway. She graduated from UCD in 2018 with a Bachelors in English and Drama. Her practice is informed by the idea of a duality within the self; the primal beast versus the mechanical. As a part of Remote Control she will create video and sound work, exploring through dance, the kinetics of function in farming landscapes of the rural West, as a means of reflecting on the ethics of a modernised, yet somewhat ancient Ireland.

Eibhleann Caffrey is a writer and director based in Galway City. While making use of verse and rhyme, Eibhleann has used her voice to explore issues facing Irish teens and the influence of social media in our day to day lives. Eibhleann will be focusing on expanding her narrative voice to build a play which performs the world inside our phones

Siobhán Manson is a Galway based dancer and choreographer. She trained with the Hession school and spent over 10 years as principal dancer with Riverdance. Siobhán’s current work is focusing on women’s lived experience through arts practice. With the Remote Control programme, Siobhán is going to further explore the use of spoken word in dance choreography.

Jenni Nikinmaa is a playwright & theatre-maker originally from Finland, currently based on Inishmore. She holds a master’s degree in Playwriting and Dramaturgy from NUI Galway and was shortlisted for the Alpine Fellowship Theatre Prize in 2020. During the Remote Control residency, Jenni will explore how immersive and socially distant theatre works in dialogue with the magic and stories of Inishmore.
