SXSW – Austin, Texas (2016)
A 15 foot-high Boy Explorer finds himself walking through 6th street in Downtown Austin, chasing after a large butterfly.
This leads him around corners, into side streets and alleyways populated with characters, creatures, fire and light. The Boy summons these dreamers and schemers out of hiding. He escapes into a world of adventure meeting guardians of the unpredictable, resurrecting magical and fearsome beasts out of the shadows and waltzing wild and new and wondrous friendships into being. This dusk time reverie on Saturday 12th March TOOK adults and children alike on a magical journey, bringing the creativity and talent of Ireland onto the streets of Austin for one single performance.
The presence of Galway-based street performance masters, Macnas, ensured Ireland Inc stood out from the crowd.
