A Tiny Mutiny taking over Ros Muc

Galway Daily arts A Tiny Mutiny taking over Ros Muc

The children are taking over Ros Muc this weekend, as Baboró’s Tiny Mutiny is coming to Connemara in this celebration of children’s art.

Baboró commission, Tiny Mutiny/An Ceannairc Beag Bídeach, will celebrate children as artists in their own right as they create colourful, boisterous protest performances in both Ros Muc and Galway city.

Two youth ensembles will proclaim the need for a child-led cultural space in the West of Ireland, having created their visions and proclamations in response to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.

The first of these exciting site-specific events will take place at Ionad Cultúrtha an Phiarsaigh, Ros Muc on Saturday 15 October at 6:30pm, with rebellious children from Connemara.

As evening falls on Saturday, the Tiny Mutiny will take their protest to Ionad Cultúrtha an Phiarsaigh, lit by sun guns and a visual projection on the cottage’s gable end.

The second mutiny will be led by children from Galway city and will take place at the Spanish Arch at 6:30pm on Saturday 22 October.

Working with local artists Jojo Hynes, Midie Corcoran, Róisín Seoige, Laura Angell & Atmos Collective, each ensemble will share their vision through protest performances accompanied by colourful banners, rebellious songs and digital projections.

The exciting site-specific events take place at Ionad Cultúrtha an Phiarsaigh and in Galway City. If you are Galway City based, the Tiny Mutiny will be on the Spanish Arch at 6:30pm on Saturday 22 October.
