Macnas is an internationally acclaimed performance and spectacle company based in an old pram factory in Galway city, Ireland. The work is created by a collaborative team of designers and makers, under the artistic direction of Noeline Kavanagh, who has been in situ since 2009.
Macnas energise audiences with interactive performances at festivals and celebrations around the globe, bringing stunning large-scale images and brilliant chaos to the streets of the world.
These pioneers of invention have toured the world performing with U2, celebrated the millennium in New York Times Square, and been part of the magic at the MTV awards, performed in China, Australia, and San Francisco. Macnas is still firmly rooted on the streets of Ireland with its highly acclaimed annual Macnas street spectacle, which takes place in their home town of Galway over Halloween bank holiday weekend.
