We are looking for actors, poets and singers, amateur or professional who would like to perform their favourite spoken pieces and anyone who would just like to listen in. All you need to take part is your talent and the Zoom application loaded onto one of your devices.
What sort of things are we looking for?
Briefly we are looking for performances of pieces which are authentically Irish. Speeches from plays, poems and what used to be called ‘recitations’. These can be sad, funny, thought provoking. Written by someone well known or yourself. Spoken pieces can be performed or just read. Singers and musicians are also welcome.
Are there any rules?
Just the two. Firstly your piece must not be longer than six minutes so we can give as many people as we can the opportunity to perform. Secondly we also like you to get in touch in advance so we can get a rough idea of who will be joining us and find out a little bit about their piece.
Performers should contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please put “Craic” in the Subject Line and tell ne briefly what your piece is.
