Spréacha Soar Festival for Children & Young People

Join us for an exciting week of 23 brand new shows inspired by young people from Dublin 15, aged just days old to 22 years old.

Draíocht is delighted to deliver the Spréacha Soar Festival for Children & Young People, the culmination of months of work and our project NEST.

NEST is a visionary, artistically ambitious project of scale that will see 23 stories inspired by Dublin 15’s children and young people, brought to life through collaboration with 23 leading multi-disciplinary artists – playwrights, theatre makers, spoken word artists, dance artists, and music artists – to produce 23 new contemporary works that map our present through the eyes of our children and young people.

Led by Artistic Director, Veronica Coburn, NEST is about citizenship alongside the idea of home, both individual and collective, a single house, a familial place, a society. It will mark the Decade of Centenaries by exploring the ideals of our origin state, liberty, equality and equity in a contemporary context.
