Mark Ball is a theatre-maker and the Artistic Director of Super Paua, a company that makes theatre and art for young people. Mark’s work is often multilingual and multidisciplinary and involves audience participation and engagement. Mark’s practice asks participants to question what they know and how they’ve come to know it; surprises and delights them with their own natural curiosity, creativity and humour, and that of their peers; and creates space for them to harness this to lead their learning and creative ideas to connect in a new way.

Mark completed Artstrain a Level 7 in Drama Facilitation and Youth Arts in 2017. Mark has facilitated workshops with over a thousand young people across the country with Riverbank Arts Centre, Mermaid Arts Centre, Hawkswell Theatre, Roscommon Arts Centre, axis: Ballymun, Draíocht Arts Centre, the Abbey Theatre, the Ark Children’s Cultural Centre and Mother Tongues.
