This summer, Macnas will open our workshop at Fisheries Field once again to young artists and performers aged 7-12 for a week-long exploration of Macnas performance and making techniques.
Facilitated by lead Macnas performance directors Judith Higgins and Miquel Barcelo, Macnas' youngest collaborators will gain an insight into the magic of spectacle while developing new and exciting skills.
With a focus on physical activity and games, the workshop will sow the seeds of Macnas magic and mayhem in a celebration of imagination and creativity from a child’s perspective.
