The Bui Bolg Youth Arts group in conjunction with Chris Bull and Chanti Hobbit of the Invisible Circus have devised a brand new piece of work for the people of Wexford to come and enjoy!
The concept for this new work comes from the Mexican day of the dead and takes its themes from within that context. They will be looking at the work of Posada the famous Mexican lithographic artist who celebrates his centenary this year. Posada was a social satirist who won great acclaim for his comic look at Mexican society. They also will be taking inspiration from Diego Rivera’s famous mural “Sueño de una tarde dominical en la Alameda Central.” This extraordinary mural reflects moments in the historical and political life of Mexico over the centuries.
The Youth group are delighted to be working with Chris and Chanti again, for a full week devising under this theme and training in circus skills such as hula-hooping, tight rope walking, juggling and spinning plates.
The resulting show ‘Bones’ shall be presented on Saturday 6th April at 2pm at the Green beside Wexford Arts Centre. It shall incorporate some of Bui Bolg’s renowned larger than life props and puppets as well as circus skills, performance elements and movement.
This exciting project is the final element to a programme which Bui Bolg have been running with their Youth Arts group over the last number of months. This programme was generously funded by the Arts Councils Young Ensemble Scheme.
