Macnas at Wilderness Festival (2014)

In August 2014, Macnas collaborated with And Now: to present a Saturday night spectacle at Wilderness Festival, UK.

A 15ft high 8 year old Boy chases a butterfly through the magical landscape of Cornbury Park. He beckons a giant luminous Hare, Horse and Stag to follow him to the meadow field. Here, with the backdrop of a 40ft Tower of Babel, he encounters a fearsome mechanical Wolf and befriends him. The spectacle culminates in a thrilling bonfire burn by pyrotechnical wizards And Now:

Presented with support of Culture Ireland

Directed by Noeline Kavanagh
