Acting and Irish Theatre is an advanced level course that offers the opportunity to expand, explore and deepen awareness of Irish theatre. The course draws on the central aspects of The Lir’s core teaching, focussing particularly on twentieth and twenty-first century Irish plays and playwrights.

Acting, Voice and Movement classes will focus on the unique demands of performing Irish plays. Voice classes will focus on the particular requirements of Irish texts including a wide range of Irish contemporary and historic dialects. The actor will explore the notion of body and movement in Irish play texts through different periods of history in relation to culture, clothing, dance, beliefs and superstitions, urban and rural environments, physical embodiment of work, pass-time and muscularity of text. A further class will explore the production and performance history of some of the most iconic plays in the Irish repertoire.
