With one eye on art and the other on invention, Macnas will once again open the ABSOLUT Fringe 2011 in truly spectacular fashion, amidst the stunning, evocative environs of The National Museum of Ireland, Collins Barracks Dublin on Saturday 10th September at 7.45 p.m.
With a story led by a Mistress of invention featuring Macnas’s dramatic large scale images, live music, fiery landscapes and stunning performances by the Macnas troupe, this outdoor spectacle promised to be low and divine, soiled and sublime. Misfits and navigators, poets, punks and mystics growl at the moon, unbind darkness and rediscover the pulp and sinew of innocence.
Macnas unveils the communication of the future, catch a glimpse of new universes as imaginers, conjurers, philosophers and inventors stagger, stalk, rip, roar and wrangle their way through a world caught in the act of becoming. In this ugly, pretty life be amazed, terrified and tremble and awake to the creation of a new work on the edge of things.
After the incredible success of Macnas’s performance at last years ABSOLUT Fringe this one night only spectacle promises to be magical and haunting in equal measure. It is a free event however it is ticketed and tickets can be collected at the ABSOLUT Fringe Box Office in Filmbase from Wednesday August 17th until 6pm Saturday September 10th, subject to availability. A limited number of tickets will also be available at the museum until 5pm Friday September 9th.
