In Episode 23 of Stage Door Live we dive into Backstage Burnout, Irish Street Arts, and an adaptation from the Stage to Film.

We begin by talking to Live Event Production Manager Lisa Mahony and Theatre Practitioner Grace Halton about the realities of #BackstageBurnout. We focus on some of Grace’s recent research into burnout and overwork culture in Irish Theatre, as well as ways to correct the situation. Lucy Medlycott, Director of the Irish Street Arts, Circus and Spectacle Network, joins us to discuss the misconceptions about Street Arts and the work ISACS is doing to champion the sector. Finally, we then chat with writer Luke Shanahan and producer Maya McNair about their stage to film creation “The Absolute State“, part of Galway Fringe Festival. We’re also joined by Ciaran O’Reilly, director of the Irish Rep in New York City and our final poetic thought is delivered by Muireann Ni Raghallaigh.
