Corcadorca Theatre Company presented Love as part of the Woodford Bourne Cork Midsummer Festival 2003. This newly devised site-specific workshop production took place in the disused Guys building on Cornmarket Street in the heart of Cork city.
Love was developed over a 4 week rehearsal period with a cast of 11 local actors who hadn’t worked professionally before, and were just setting out on their professional careers. This was the sole criterion for taking part in the Corcadorca workshop. Corcadorca’s Artistic Director Pat Kiernan, worked with a professional production team directing Love. This original new work began with just the title and the building.
The promenade production was based on the theme of ‘Love’ so tenderness, kissing, caring, sharing, jealousy, bitterness, fighting, cheesy pop songs, promises, plans, introductions and goodbyes all played a part.
Venue: Guys Building, Cornmarket Street, Cork, June 2003.
Workshop Production devised by the cast
