Culture Ireland supported an expanded Irish presence at FiraTàrrega in Tàrrega, Spain from 8 to 11 September 2016.
Founded in 1981, FiraTàrrega is an international networking and showcase event for the performing arts, with special emphasis on street art and spectacle genres. The main objective of FiraTàrrega is to create and develop international opportunities for artists.
This year Culture Ireland funded the Irish Street Art, Circus and Spectacle network to manage an Irish stand at the event.
In addition, Culture Ireland funded five delegates to attend the event, assist in manning the Irish stand and take advantage of the presence of many international programmers and presenters.
The five delegates were:
• Aidan Phelan, Réalta Prods
• Orlagh de Bhaldraithe, Macnas
• Con Horgan, Fanzini Productions
• Guillaume Cousson, Riuchi
• Will Flanagan, PassePartout Circus
