Welcome to the Theatre Development Centre

The Theatre Development Centre was established by Corcadorca in 2011. Unique in Ireland, it is a studio space dedicated to the development of professional theatre.

Housed in the Triskel Arts Centre, Corcadorca make the space available to theatre makers free of charge so they may write, work with actors, 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.

Hammergrin are in the TDC this week developing a brand new project. Still in its extremely early stages, the new piece is a response to the Japanese novella Hell Screen by Ryunosuke Akutagawa. This development week has been about story, theme and structure. On Friday, they hope to have a small excerpt to present and have an informal discussion about their process. This project is generously supported by the Arts Council.
