Sneak Peak at Unwrapped 2013

We’re busy working on the lanterns and costumes for UNWRAPPED 2013 and we’re expecting some 300 people to take part!

Here are some features for UNWRAPPED 2013: 

  • Youth, school and community arts, performance and music groups will bring to life each of the ’12 days of Christmas’ (yup, the song!) through song, dance, lanterns and costumes
  • Each day will have its own performance moment in the midst of a parade of characters and animals from the song.
  • Visual artists Jackie Gray and Tadashi Kato have designed an array of colourful and exotic costumes, hats and lanterns most of which will be made using recycled materials.
  • The  presentation of the song ‘The 12 days of Christmas’ will be a musical feast of rap, hip hop, traditional Irish, band and brass music composed by musicians Gerry Horan, Martin Moran and Michael Fleming in collaboration with local music groups

Here’s a sneak peak at the design of some of the lanterns for our 10 Lords – a – Leaping and our 7 Geese-a-Laying!
