UNWRAPPED is an annual winter celebration. Children, young people, and communities of all ages join professional artists to “unwrap” the festive winter season through a combination of music, performance and visual arts.
This year we tell an alternative festive tale! Winter’s dark days are
a time of the year when anything can happen. The Wren Boys, a group of magical travelling players, come to town and conjure up a Christmas spirit.
Setting out on an adventure accompanied by 6 Reindeer and a cheeky spirit called Puck, they meet Jack and Jill Frost along the way and awaken an icy Snow Queen.
Faced with a total FREEZE, our heroes & heroines have to find a way to melt the Snow Queen’s heart and save the world…
Hundreds of costumes, props and decorations are being made for Unwrapped 2015 by artists Tadashi Kato and Dee Pouch, who are working in Tallaght Community Arts Making Space. Over 200 children, young people and adults from South Dublin County’s youth, school, disability and community arts, performance and music groups will be participating in this years performance.
Unwrapped 2015 happens on Saturday the 5th December 2015 at 4.45pm in Chamber Square outside the County Library, Tallaght. It is a family friendly event, and free to all to attend.
