From January to June 2023, Susanne Kennedy will work with five contemporary performing arts makers based in Ireland. This Pan Pan mentorship programme is a unique opportunity for theatre and performance makers to develop an early-stage idea for performance, outside the pressures of production. The engagement of the mentor is aimed to pose challenges and offer interrogations within a supportive structure.
In addition to meeting Susanne over a series of encounters online and in person in Dublin (as Covid-19 restrictions allow), each of the participants will receive a bursary to help them dedicate time to work on their ideas. Participants will also be offered a travel subsidy to help them see relevant work internationally.
