Lasair Acting Workshops

Lasair was an initiative principally sponsored by Colmcille to create a three-week intensive drama course and summer school in Gaeilge and Gàidhlig for young people.

The need for the course arose when it was perceived that young soap-opera actors were unskilled to further their careers once their characters in the respective programmes had finished – this in terms of all areas of drama, from flexibility of movement, stage and screen training, characterisation and voice production - and that no equivalent training was available.
