Developed as part of Live Collision International Festival 2018 and presented by Dublin Theatre Festival 2019, supported by the Arts Council of Ireland and Dublin City Council. She is one of two core producers on all productions at ANU to date including The Party to End All Parties, Hentown, The Sin Eaters (Dublin Theatre Festival); The Anvil (Manchester International Festival), The Lost O’Casey (The Abbey Theatre and Dublin Theatre Festival), TORCH (Arts Council England Ambition and Excellence Award), Hawknest (The Gate Theatre), Zero-Hour, These Rooms (London International Festival of Theatre), Pals – the Irish at Gallipoli (Dept of Arts and Heritage and National Museum of Ireland), Vardo, Angel Meadow and many more.
In 2009 Lynnette established Live Collision, Ireland’s leading annual curated festival of Live Art and Ireland’s first independent Creative Producing House working with exceptional artists nationally and internationally. Live Collision has produced the work of several independent artists and artworks outside of the festival which include Amanda Coogan’s Talk Real Fine, Just Like A Lady; You Told Me To Wash and Clean My Ears and Amanda Coogan, LONG NOW (Film Doc); Lisa McLoughlin’s The Kindness of Strangers; Athletes of the Heart, Anna Furse – An Anatomy Act and I AM NOT A PIECE OF MEAT (Digital Artwork); The Prosperity Project by Jesse Jones (OPW commission). FAST TRACK TO DANCE is an annual shared audience development initiative between Live Collision and Dublin Dance Festival.
Lynnette was co-founder and Lead Producer for CAPP (Collaborative Art Partnership Programme), an unprecedented four year transnational partnership across six European countries and nine partner organisations co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union, focusing on collaborative and socially engaged practice and commissions across Europe between 2014 – 2018. She was also Associate Producer at Create for six years.
She has directed over 25 works for theatre and gallery spaces, as well as for screen and digital media. Together with Kate Craddock she co-founded mouth to mouth, an international performance collective based in eight countries around the world, rehearsing and devising online before the performances took place in real time across multiple locations. Noted as the first performance company in the UK to use Skype and other domestic technology as ‘an integrated element of the creation and presentation of performances’, as outlined by Greg Giesekam in ‘Staging the Screen: The Use of Film and Video in Performance.’
A brilliant antidote to all those packaged, commodified and commercialised cultural experiences that make up much of today’s landscape, Live Art is a chance to dip your toe into exciting and sometimes dangerous waters. Yes you run the risk of being alarmed, maybe occasionally bored, discomforted or dismayed. But you may also be exhilarated, excited, enthused, and you just might never look at the world, or yourself in the same way again. — Gemma Tipton, The Irish Times
Lynnette began her career in London, cutting her teeth with some of the UK’s leading arts organisations including LIFT (London International Festival of Theatre) and BAC (Battersea Arts Centre) where she developed her practice as a Creative Producer. She holds a BA Hons Degree in Fine Art from Wolverhampton University and an MA in Performance Art from Goldsmiths College, London.
Lynnette Moran is alumni and member of the EFA (European Festival Association) since being selected in 2012 for the EFA Atelier Programme – an international mentoring programme for the ‘next generation’ of festival directors mentored by pioneering festival directors such as Nele Hertling and Hugo De Greef.
