Dowtcha Youth Ensemble









The Dowtcha Youth Ensemble was established in 2015 and is a group for young theatre makers (between the age of 12 and 23 ) who have an interest in puppetry.

The ensemble meet on a weekly basis to create puppetry productions under the tutelage of Dowtcha Puppet’s directors (Cliff Dolliver & Davy Dummigan) and with support from industry professionals.

In 2016 the ensemble produced ‘The Underwater Shoes’ which was performed to great acclaim at the Cork Puppetry Festival and the Electric Picnic.

In 2017 The Dowtcha Youth Ensemble will;

  1. develop a new piece for large scale puppetry to be performed at the end of July in the Cork  Puppetry Festival, and to potentially tour other festivals.
  2. experiment with shadow puppetry leading up to the creative development of a new Dowtcha Puppets production.

We are always interested to hear from potential new members and are currently recruiting for the upcoming productions. Drop us an email to and tell us a little about yourself to get the ball rolling.
