Enchanted (12:30pm & 3pm)

Sunday June 9 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

Within this playful, immersive experience, the merfolk sip seaweed tea inside eerie underwater buildings, Seagull-John cooks white birds over trash fires, and dreams from the future explore loss, rainbows, and sorrow in a liminal space gone awry with climate chaos. The magician (Ali Keohane) brings the audiences onto Hy-Brasil, the mythical disappearing island, while they walk around Inisheer listening to stories on audio headsets told by actors Mikel Murfi, Jenni Nikinmaa & Tonya Lenhart.

Duration approximately 1 hr – route approximately 2 kilometers outdoors, please wear proper walking shoes and dress according to the weather.
