Our Ethos Featured
The Non Prophet Organisation and the Non Prophet Community Festivals, celebrating cultural diversity, aim to transform the latent potentiality of entertainment practices as a means of socio ecological engagement. Through collaborative performances between artists and ‘everyday experts’: ‘professionals of a theatre of the real world’, sharing in the creative process we hope to create a sense of inclusivity for everybody!
Our productions and performances as socio-ecological practice seek to transform our concept of cultural entertainment particularly in natural, rural settings.
The reason being the rural community is a microcosm reflecting our global macrocosm: What we’re proposing is to some extent a revolution to the origins of theatrical entertainment in Greek Dionysian festivals where the local community played an active role in celebrating the seasonal life-cycle.
In this digital age with the possibility of streaming events live and multi-media entertainment practices there is a window of opportunity to transform our cultural ethos in a community context to address social and environmental issues in an alternative way.
We will also promote tourism in our relatively un-spoilt countryside and along our Atlantic coastline. It’s important that we preserve this image of Ireland with the support of Bord Failte, Culture Ireland and local governing bodies. And we can do so by communities and counties linking up rather than compete by creating a festival circuit so performers and tourists alike can come with their families for a period of time to travel along the wild Atlantic way combining work and play.
