Few theatre companies have such an instantly recognisable physical aesthetic as Corn Exchange, and the stamp of their astonishing artistic director Annie Ryan is all over their work. Here, we chat about her early years working on such films as “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” back in the States, her time training at NYU, what inspired her relocation to Ireland, the emergence of Corn Exchange, the importance of their trademark Commedia style and ongoing ensemble, and her ambitious plans for their forthcoming production of Dubliners. It’s episode 40 of the Rise Productions: Irish Theatre Podcast – Enjoy!
