Selma Daniel is delighted to be part of the Irish delegation of artists, festivals, producers and funders to be attending IPAY 2020 in Philadelphia, USA supported by the Arts Council.
International Performing Arts for Youth (IPAY) was incorporated in 2001 as a service agency for producers, promoters, and presenters in the field. It grew out of the efforts of the pioneers of quality children’s programming in the United States and Canada to organize the Annual International Showcase Conference. The first International Showcase was presented in Chicago in March 1979.

What’s the Craic?
Sponsored by Culture Ireland and Arts Council Northern Ireland

Wednesday, January 22
Suzanne Roberts Theatre

IPAY has a long history of showcasing great touring productions from Irish companies. This full hour cultural spotlight will provide a glimpse into the greater sector of performing arts for young audiences that is being created and presented in an “all-island” Irish spotlight.

The Irish delegation features artists, festivals, producers and funders whom will provide an overview of the sector including great puppetry, theatre, dance and circus productions as well as connections to outstanding international festivals. Experience the Wednesday pitch, raise a glass of cheer with them afterwards, see their work on stage in showcases and spotlights, and connect with them throughout the week. Guaranteed good craic!
