Scene + Heard 2017 (Festival of New Work)

Share This:

The Arts are a Necessity in everyone’s life not a Luxury

Take a moment to consider the huge contribution made by the arts to the life of the community and the community in which you operate. Imagine if your involvement could shape the future of the Arts in Ireland, the music we make and the stories we tell…

What is so damn good about Scene + Heard?

Smock Allies : Scene + Heard is a festival of new work across all live performance genres : MUSIC – DANCE – THEATRE – COMEDY + SPOKEN WORD. 

Why is it different from other Arts Festivals?

It provides a chance for artists to stage an excerpt of previously unseen work in front of a live audience who then give their feedback so the Artist can MAKE SURE their work is making an impact and not just ‘ELITIST THEATRE NONSENSE’


We ask our audiences for Feedback in a number of ways. In its inaugural year (Feb/March 2016) Scene + Heard saw 85 pieces of new work being showcased to an audience of 4,800 people with audiences giving feedback in a myriad of ways (secret ballot, video booth, Q &A, live twitter feed, candy poll) which was sent directly to the artists.

Our team has gathered years of collective experience producing festivals, theatre, TV + film, design, architecture, photography, music, marketing, comedy and dance as well as vast and innovative technical expertise, which we want to share with these emerging Artists and their exciting ideas.
