Culture Night at Opera Lane – Wobbly Circus
This performance is of a walkabout nature. Meet our larger than life colourful stilt walker ‘Lady Longbottom’ and ‘Clown on a Bike’ a unique act performed on a mini penny farthing bicycle. This is free range circus with added bass! The roving acts add colour, excitement and crowd interaction to this culture night event!
When: 5PM – 7.30PM
Culture Night at Opera Lane – Juggler Brendan
These juggling workshops on Cork culture night focus on fun, achievable tricks with a variety of different juggling props, to make sure that every person leaves with a feeling of accomplishment and pride. Juggling is non-competitive and the skills taught are easily accessible for all. Since every group is different, Brendan adapts each workshop to match the age, skill level, and skill spread of the class.
Brendan will be throwing open his cases of juggling equipment for everyone to pick up a prop and have a go! Learn to balance a feather, spin a plate, juggle 3 balls or manipulate a flower stick in this informal workshop. Come along and try what you like – no previous hand-eye coordination needed! Go your own way, make up your own tricks, or learn something new. Juggler Brendan will be on-hand with helpful tips for anyone who wants them!
When: 6.30PM – 7.30PM
You can also find Juggler Brendan at Cork City Library at 4.30PM – 5.30PM.
