Spindrift Theatre is currently sitting at Dublin Airport discussing discoveries made from our work with talented acting students of Gaiety School of Acting, Dublin Institute of Technology, Bull Alley and Inchicore College during the past three days of The Performer and the Self.

We're excited about the research material documented by filmmaker Louis Crevier which we will share with you soon as a video insight into our work.

We thank our students for their generosity and rigorous work, both in the individual exercises, group devising and sharing of their individual final pieces. We are incredibly inspired by the work we witnessed those three days. We thank for the warm and helpful feedback they took the time to give us upon the completion of their work with us. 

We send a warm thank you to our set designer Hallveig Kristín Eiríksdóttir who joined our company once more with intriguing research and exercises for the actor's character building through different materials, objects and the performance space.

Preparing tomorrow's workshop The Performer and the Self for Acting students of: Gaiety School of Acting, Dublin Institute of Technology, Bull Alley and Inchicore College.


Through the support of Evropa Unga Folksins Erasmus+ we are traveling between European institutes to offer free physical theatre training focused on the Self, devising and expanding the performer's vocal range and movement qualities.


We launched the workshop series The Performer and the Self at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland tomorrow where our student met us at the Wallace Studio.

Scenic designer Hallveig Eiríksdóttir has joined us for the workshops to expand the performer's knowledge of scenic design and the way it can support the character and storytelling. 

The Junior Academy students engaged wholeheartedly with exercises generated as a simplified research tools into complicated ideas on identity, memory and corporal attitudes.

The students developed their findings individually and collaboratively through the various exercises which examined autobiographical storytelling, exploration of physicality, gestures, object play, soundscape, spatial awareness and visual scenic language.

The pieces then received direction before being combined into a performance structure for their final sharing. 

We left feeling unbelievably inspired by their hard work, generosity and openness. 

Next stop is at Dublin’s Gaiety School of Acting.


Sólveig Eva is currently running research and development workshops in New York. 


The workshop is a continuation of our physical theatre series focusing on autobiographical devising and exploring movement and vocal qualities we may normally shy away from. 

Thank you to our New York attendants Kayla, Shpend, Madeleine and Aisling who helped us further our research and shape our exercises further.
