15 June 2013: The Enchanted Garden

The Enchanted Garden

The Enchanted Garden creates opportunities for families to engage in the arts in a unique, creative, playful, fun and interactive way in the beautiful setting of Killruddery Gardens. This year, Monkeyshine Theatre from Ireland and Theater Papilio from Germany will reunite in an exciting collaboration.

Throughout the week-long residency, Killruddery Gardens and Woodland will provide a rich environment in which to find inspiration and materials to create HOME in a magical tent in the woods. The artists will create puppets, props and set from natural materials and devise the framework of a theatrical experience. During the festival, children are invited to participate in the creative process; they take part in foraging expeditions and bring their finds to the tent. Here with the artists they will develop characters, songs and stories. The work developed during the residency will form the basis of a show that will be performed both in Ireland and Germany.
