Theatr na n'Og



With the support of the International Opportunities Fund, two members of Theatr na n'Og travelled to Rio De Janeiro to view a production of their play "You Should Ask Wallace". While there they observed methods of creating art for the communities that live in the favellas of Rio de Janeiro and gained an insight into the different methods of interactivity and inclusivity. They explored the possibility of initiating future projects between the two cultures, focussing on the combination of art and science.
