Macnas Let’s the Big River Flow

The Big River flowed through the streets of Galway on Sunday the 23rd of July, courtesy of Galway’s famed street theatre company Macnas. The spectacular production was Macnas’ contribution to the  the Galway Arts Festival 06 . Thousands of people lined the streets to witness the annual spectacle that is the Macnas Parade, one of the festival’s true highlights.

The Big River production marked a departure for Macnas. Produced in partnership with KCAT, a resident arts organization for people with special needs based in Callan, Co. Kilkenny, the Big River was an exciting partnership that challenging Macnas both creatively and logistically.  KCAT artists conceived the entire program, including story line, costumes and props. It was up to the staff of Macnas to figure just how to build these brilliant and fanciful designs.

They certainly rose to the occasion, producing an array of iconic costumes and props.  The Big River production featured River Maids, Minnows, Lily Pads, an Evil Pike, and a rushing river, all brilliantly depicted by the show’s cast that numbered well into the  hundred, on a stellar sunny Sunday afternoon in the middle of July. it was certainly another splendid day in the history of Macnas.
