Kamchatka

Kamchatka

Starts at Fairgreen Centre

Date
Fri 8 June

Time
6 pm

'Brilliant, suspenseful, inventive, profound and light at the same time'

Eight character lost, each carrying their own suitcase. Passers-by or immigrants?
Naive and curious, their emotions are barely contained, they know nothing about our norms, our rules and our way of life. They may get in your car, stop the traffic, climb a lamp-post or ask you for some of your lunch.
Kamchatka eventually turns into a mirror - a mirror of our behavior towards the Other, the Foreign, the Different.
This collective of wide-eyed and inquisitive visitors will capture the hearts of the public as they take over the streets of Carlow.
