CREATIVE WORKSHOPS FOR ALL
The Abhainn Ri Festival 2013 will bring a burst of energy to the streets of Callan again this summer. An exciting visual street spectacle will be conjured up this year! Tiny finger puppets will dance through the streets and lurk around corners while enormous puppets tower over the crowds in this lively whimsical puppet extravaganza. Music, theatre and visual art will ignite the imaginations of all who take part and create memories that will last. Fancy getting involved?
Central to the Abhainn Ri Festival is participation – So get stuck in with a variety workshops that are open to children, youth and adults. Workshops in costume making, festival float building, puppet making both large and small, stilt walking and interactive theatre and improvisation are just a few of the jam packed workshops we have scheduled. We invite you to cook up a showstopper of a street theatre spectacle that will put Callan firmly on the map this summer!
