In 2019, GTF’s Festival Dramaturg Claire Mullane worked with 3 companies programmed under the Made-in-Galway work in progress strand. This strand was developed to support the work of Galway based artists, and to give audiences a behind-the-scenes peek at a work-in-development. 

In 2020 Claire started work with 4 more companies programmed in the festival. As with all things in 2020, this work was greatly impacted by COVID, and the festival was cancelled. However, we kept working and developing our ideas, and are delighted to announce Galway Theatre Festival’s Dramaturgy Programme. 

In 2021, three fantastic dramaturgs - Claire Mullane, Sarah Hoover and Marina Ní Dhubhain will work with the artists programmed in Festival 2021. Our three fantastic dramaturgs will also receive their own training from established dramaturgs working throughout the country. 

Keep an eye out for our festival programme, launching in March for more details!

We are delighted to have received funding under the Arts Council Arts Grants for this exciting new dramaturgy project.
