New work from MAC HATCH Artists

The MAC’s Hatch scheme is a long-term project based on the MAC’s commitment to ensuring that locally based, new and emerging artists are able to play their part in developing the creative energy at the heart of the MAC.

Hatch artists are championed by the MAC with their work being championed to audiences and institutions. The programme allows the artists to take risks, be brave and to learn from themselves and others. The 2015-16 Hatch Artists are Paula O’Reilly, Oona Doherty, and Amadan.

This week we are delighted that two of the 2015-16 HATCH Artists Paula O’Reilly and Oona Doherty are premiering new work at the MAC as part of the Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival.

Oona Doherty has choreographed DOCNITE. Three stunning pieces all set to a thumping score. Starring Oona and performers Neil Brown, Kelly Nicholl, Janie Doherty and Zoe Ramsey. Paula O’Reilly has choreographed Second, Minute, Hour, a fast-paced, visceral drama about one woman's battle with everything she's striving to forget, performed and devised by Paula O'Reilly and directed by Patrick J. O'Reilly.

Watch this space for news on upcoming work by Amadan, locally based husband and wife team David Quinn and Gemma Mae Halligan who are currently working to create and perform edgy, physical theatre using clowning and bouffon.
