Macnas (Irish for "Joyful Abandonment") is an award-winning theatre, spectacle and processional company based at the Fisheries Field in Galway, Ireland.

Since 1986 the company has ignited, excited and inspired audiences with performances as diverse as U2’s Zooropa Tour; Millennium parade in New York (Times Square); WOMADelaide, South Australia; Chaoyang Spring Carnival, Beijing; The President’s Garden Party, Áras an Uachtaráin; and a host of festivals, towns and cities throughout Ireland and across Europe.

Under current Artistic Director Noeline Kavanagh, the combination of diverse art forms, bespoke visual aesthetic, live performance, original composition and narrative, provide powerful ways of connecting audiences in an interactive and immediate way.

Conjuring up playful, delicious and delirious stories that are extensions of the human condition, a Macnas show ignites, excites and invites the unpredictable. Macnas sits in a world on the edge of things where stories emerge and journeys begin, inviting unlikely encounters and exhilarating experiences between audiences, communities and ourselves.
