Project summary

Aoife and Mark Carry of Twisted Lane Productions will be in residence at Cairde Sligo Arts Festival in collaboration with Passage Festival (DK) and Oerol Festival (NL). Associate Irish partners are Promenade and ISACS. During this residency, Aoife and Mark will work on Les Lumières, an immersive experience set in a mature forest where the audience is invited behind the scenes of an imagined fairytale circus. They will become autonomous voyeurs to the lives of the circus performers before being led into the Chapiteau de Lumière (big top created with lights) for the actual performance. Having experienced the humanity behind the scenes, will the show feel more personal? Will the forest forever hold the memory of the circus that performed under the stars?
