We're delighted to be announcing John Connors as axis' next Artist in Association
John will be working with us to begin development of a new piece of work
'In this show I want to explore the beauty and magic of Irish culture and our history. Singing songs and telling story's the old Seanchai way. The Traveller way. The importance of community, culture and how story telling can transcend even the worst kind of conflict.'
John will work with us over the coming months receiving space, mentorship, dramaturgical and writing supports, and a home to harness his new ideas.
