ISACS are delighted to host this unique 2 day Master Class in Physical Theatre and Mask Techniques, in association with the Wexford Arts Centre and Waterford Spraoi, led by David Poznanter and Peter Sweet of Boom Circus (US) over the 26th + 27th July in Enniscorthy, Co Wexford, just days before they set to wow the crowds at the Irish premier of their dynamic street show ‘Boom’ at Waterford Spraoi, the longest running street arts festival in Ireland over this August Bank Holiday weekend.
