Super Paua is an Irish artist-led collective that makes theatre for all ages in a variety of languages, places, and forms. Humour, social relevance, and respect define our work. We produce three types of project -
Professional Plays that are crafted by experienced storytellers, and that aim to entertain,
inspire and challenge the public.
Collaborative Classes that are run for and with communities who don’t usually go to the theatre.
Targeted Artist Development that uses some of the opportunities (and cash!) that Super Paua have access to in supporting marginalised artists, or people looking for a route into paid theatre and art work who are from marginalised groups.
Super Paua wants to give you things you didn’t think you’d like, but which you find beautiful and necessary once we’ve given them to you. We want to surprise you with the wickedness of your sense of humour, the extent of your empathy, and your bravery in the face of risk – things, perhaps, that you’d forgotten about yourself.
We use theatre and public art projects to tell exciting and empowering stories and to nurture human potential. Our super powers are laughter and solidarity, patience and flexibility, and the prioritisation of wellness in the midst of a world that is not well.
