Encore is a theatre company based in RehabCare Resource Centre in Dundalk – a centre which supports adults with intellectual disabilities in living the life of their choice as independently as possible.  Under the leadership of Sandy Sneddon, Encore has to date produced 14 shows and a feature film. Of the residency at An Táin Arts Centre Sandy says ‘this residency is the culmination of many years of hard work by all the service users and staff at RehabCare in Dundalk. For the actors to have their skills recognised in this way is a validation of their talents and efforts.’

Director of An Táin Arts Centre Paul Hayes says ‘I am delighted to announce Encore Productions as our next company in residence. They have been working in the Arts Centre for the past number of years and I have been hugely impressed with the standard of their productions. Their seemingly endless enthusiasm for theatre, coupled with Sandy’s artistic vision ensures this should be a very successful collaboration.’

An Táin Arts Centre’s theatre residency programme supports companies with the resources to make new work. As part of the residency, companies are provided with rehearsal space, technical and marketing support, dramaturgical advice and a production stipend. Quintessence Theatre was the inaugural recipient of the award, in residence from 2015 to early 2019. Follow their progress on Facebook @EncoreDundalkRC #antainartists
