The 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 puppeteers and with support from industry professionals.
The ensemble runs from March to September and welcomes new members every year.

In 2016 the ensemble produced ‘The Underwater Shoes’ which was performed to great acclaim at the Cork Puppetry Festival and the Electric Picnic.
The ensemble learned how to work with giant puppets and produced a show called ‘The Boy With No Story’ which was again performed at the Cork Puppetry Festival and the Electric Picnic.
The Ensemble are currently working on two productions for 2018, ‘Sleeping Beauty’ and the ‘Micro Puppetry Shorts’.
