Abstract / Summary

According to Philip Hardy, chair of TYA Ireland and artistic director of Barnstorm Theatre Company: “Theatre for Young Audiences has developed into a sophisticated, innovative and ground-breaking area of theatre throughout the world, no more so than in Ireland. Fairytale has been an important element in this growth. Its enchanted world has the flexibility to relate to a range of developmental stages of young audiences ranging from the retelling of the ‘safe’ fairytale to the re-presenting of the darker cautionary tale. The archetypes presented often have deep resonance and unexpected relevance for adults! This (symposium) is a unique opportunity to explore and challenge the role of fairy and folk tale for audiences today; and to hear inputs from complementary fields.”
