The Theatre Development Centre (TDC) was established by Corcadorca in 2011. TDC is housed in Triskel Arts Centre, Tobin Street, Cork. Corcadorca make the space available to theatre makers free of charge so they may write, work with actors, and develop the technical aspects of a piece—but most of all so they have a supportive environment in which to create work for the stage.
Corcadorca TDC is busy setting up for the set design exhibition which will open next week. The exhibition, entitled “Design and Destroy”, showcases the work of designers Deirdre Dwyer, Peter Power, Hanan Sheedy, Paul O’Mahony and Lisa Zagone. It is part of a National Exhibition of Stage Design taking place in Dublin, Sligo and Waterford. The Cork leg is co-hosted by Firkin Crane.
This is the first time TDC has hosted such an event. It opens on Friday, 18th January at 7pm and will run until Saturday, 26th.
SHOW is an annual event presented at TDC by Corcadorca. It is a showcase of works in progress by local and national theatre artists. It runs from Friday, November 30th to Sunday, December 2nd.
Corcadorca is proud to host this event, which has proven to be a springboard for theatre artists to bring their projects to fruition. This year’s SHOW is curated by Pat Kiernan, Artistic Director of Corcadorca and TDC.
