This time last year, Cloughjordan Circus Club members were preparing for Tiny Fantastic, our carnival arts and circus performance project.

Have a look at this fantastic video showing the process and the final performance:

Tiny Fantastic featured as part of Limerick St. Patrick’s Festival Parade and Birr Vintage Week & Arts Festival Parade in 2023.

A celebration of biodiversity!

Together with artists Martin Shannon of Lumen Street Theatre and independent carnival artist Caoimhe Dunn we explored and created ‘Tiny Fantastic’ – St. Patrick’s Day parade piece which included Giant Spider Float with Hat Manipulator Flies, Honeycomb Float with Unicycling Bees, Giant Caterpillar Jugglers accompanied by Butterfly Stilt Walkers, Hula Hooping Flowers, and Giant Stilt Walking Insects.

Our piece celebrated biodiversity, illustrating how the interconnectivity of the smallest creatures – spiders, bees and insects to the largest of natural features are dependent on each other to allow our environment to thrive.
