Silver Sunday October 3rd 2021

Silver Sunday is a day when people are asked to pause and think about older people and celebrate their contribution to society.

At Green Curtain theatre, we thought that it would be a great idea to create a project across the generations to coincide with Silver Sunday. A project that will bring older and younger generations of the Irish community together providing an opportunity for Irish culture to pass down the generations. A project to celebrate the talent of all.

For this project we would like to film elders from the Irish community performing with a much younger member from their family. For example, a grandmother singing a song with her grandchildren, a great uncle saying a poem with a great niece or nephew, a cousin with a much younger cousin. Or two friends. We’re looking for performances of no more than 3 minutes.

People can choose to either sing, dance, recite a poem, play an instrument. The choice is theirs. The only thing we ask is that the music, songs, poems or other pieces are Irish. This is because we think that Silver Sunday would be a great opportunity for a child who may never have learnt a particular Irish song, dance or poem to learn one. We will record the pieces remotely so the only equipment needed to take part is a laptop which has a webcam and broadband access. We can record people in their own homes.
