Master storytellers Macnas will bring a dramatic new interpretation of the world’s oldest story to Galway – the legend of Gilgamesh.
The legend of Gilgamesh is the world’s first ever hero’s journey.
An epic tale which follows a young king called Gilgamesh as he embarks upon a quest for answers to humanity’s fundamental questions about love, power, death and immortality.
The extraordinary adventures of Gilgamesh will unfold across city, county and online and will see Macnas elevate its signature imaginative style taking traditional theatre and storytelling, into new outdoor, indoor and digital territories via Macnas.com, bringing the contemporary themes of this ancient origin story to life.
Get ready. Gilgamesh is coming.
