Celebrating 21 years of the madness that is Macnas.
Description

Details

Macnas has been entertaining and enchanting audiences for the last 21 years with innovative street events, award winning theatre and community performances. Macnas is a company that believes that the creative experience should be open to all; they harness and celebrate creative collective energy and turn it into the joyful abandonment one sees in every Macnas performance.

From constructing a 10 metre Gulliver for Dublin's Millennium celebrations in 1986, to touring with U2 in 42 European countries, to scary surprise Halloween street events, Macnas has always pushed the boundaries of what is considered theatre in Ireland and is a name that has become synonymous with having fun on a grand scale. This book will document the journey of Macnas from 1986 until the present day; the companys work, changes, and directions. There will be a heavy emphasis on visual material including a timeline, interviews, profiles, anecdotes, and other data relevant to the journey. As one would expect from a company like Macnas, this book wont be the average coffee table tome. The reader can expect a visual feast, a dazzling array of images, anecdotes and stories from over the years, told as only Macnas know how.
