Huge congratulations our friends nominated for the Irish Film and Television Awards – but Especially our Abbey School of Drama alumni: John Connors nominated for “Actor in a Supporting Role in Drama” for Love/Hate and Matthew Daragh for his animated film ‘Ode to Love’, with Brown Bag Films. In this tough business, we are so happy to celebrate when talent is recognised!
8:00pm March 10th & 11th, 2015
A devised theatre piece for one musician, 14 actors and 28 characters. Money, debt, time, family, addiction, profit, rejection, looking for work and looking for love, all distract us is from our individual paths. This tells the story of wildly different people and their common struggle to discover what really matters in life.

(COMPLETED in 2014 – To inquire about upcoming guest workshops click here to: “Contact Us”)
Flying Turtle Productions is delighted to announce the first in a series of international guest artists as supported by the E & C Association and Artists in Education organization of Luxembourg.
For the first time in Ireland, Vladimir Bouchler, world renowned director and teacher who trained with the Ostrovsky Theatre School and Moscow Shukin Theatre School (Third Moscow Art Studio), will be in Dublin to do a 3-day practical workshop for actors on Anton Chekov’s play The Three Sisters. If you are seeking methods to make your work more engaging, dynamic, immediate, creative and emotionally charged – this is the work that you should be doing.
This is a rare opportunity to practice the techniques initiated by Stanislavski and Vakhtangov, focused around the work of playwright Anton Chekov. Vladimer Bouchler, is currently the head of the acting department of MTHS Oslo (Norwegian College of Drama and Musical Theatre), a guest artist at the Bristol Old Vic, and works as an independent director worldwide. In the 3-day workshop he will develop the participants’ scenes through a continuing series of exercises and improvisations designed to reveal the essence of the character, his/her true motivation, through action, super objective, manner of game and rhythm of existence. (See more details on Vladimer below and the more information on the workshop content and required preparation is available upon inquiry.)
The admission by application is CLOSING SOON and only 15 actor participants will be accepted. ONLY A FEW SPACES LEFT!
There is also an opportunity to participate as an “observer-only” for a minimal fee of €10 per 4 hour session.
Please see details below regarding dates, fees, course content, course preparation and application process.
All actors must know the play “The Three Sisters” and will be assigned specific scenes to prepare in advance of the workshop.

You have the option to observe for one, two or all three days – but must commit to attending for the full afternoon without interruption. Those seeking to observe the workshops are asked to arrive early and stay for the full workshop length for the day that you have reserved, so that the process is not disturbed by people coming and going. A non-refundable payment of €10 per workshop day will be due within 3 business days of reserving. (Refundable only in the event of workshop cancellation.)
