It's that time of the year again and only a few days before our members unveil what they have been designing, building, rehearsing for the past months to grace our wide-open eyes. Magnificent parades and processions will descend upon the streets of Ireland with colourful, breath-taking, gigantic installations and creations, accompanied by flamboyant street performers' characters marching on the sound of the most festive rhythms; all telling a meaningful story celebrating various aspects of the Irish identity.
Without further ado, we present you with a selection of themes and pageants to look forward all across the country!
Join Women in Circus International Women’s Day celebrations!
We have highlighted ten Women in Circus who have helped shape the Irish Circus landscape as we know it today! From Circus 250 ringmistress, Mother of Aerial Circus, academics, or strong figures in the national, local, contemporary or traditional sector, we have picked Irish Strong Women from different parts of the country, for their impact on the development of Irish Circus, strong personalities and involvement with the Irish Street Arts, Circus and Spectacle Network!
Of course, these are only ten profiles among many incredible Strong Women in Ireland and we salute all the Women in Circus in Ireland and beyond! Happy International Women's Day!
#WomeninCircus #Circus250 #IWD2018
In 2018, Ireland is celebrating 250 years of Circus! While we're all reflecting on Circus in the last centuries, we have decided to highlight ten incredible Irish circus duos in the current Irish Circus scene. Some duos have been working together for years and some are only starting their collaboration.
