Volunteers are required to assist in the making of a 30 minute show, for their 1916 Commemoration event. This will take place in Croke Park on Sunday, 24th April 2016, after the Division One league Final and will be televised by TG4.
The G.A.A. wish to commemorate 1916, the Proclamation, the story of Gaelic Games and their role in the centenary since. We aim to create a show of emotion and spectacle through large-scale innovative theatre, dance, song, image and pageant that rouses and moves audience in the stadium and on the television.
The show will be directed by Ruan Magan, who directed the very successful documentary series 1916 shown recently on RTE One. There will be newly commissioned music composed by Patrick Cassidy, and some of Irelands leading choreographers and designers are working on the show.
20 girls all over 18 years of age are required, all who have some form of dance or movement experience who will be helping two Queens onto the pitch as they have extremely large costumes. They need to be strong, agile and fit. We then need a further 80 volunteers from 18 years and over who will be helping on and off the pitch that day. They will be helping with the show and on pitch with the performers. These 80 need to be fit and confident to work in front of a large crowd, but don’t need any dance experience. It would be preferable to have more male than female volunteers in this group. All volunteers will need to wear black trousers, black long sleeve tops and black runners or soft shoes.
