Highlights include Fanzini' circus' performance Roots, and the world premiere of a composition from Irish musician Séan MacErlaine to accompany an interactive reading and illustration of Eoin Colfer's graphic novel, Illegal, and a lively concert by award winning ensemble Yurodny, who will perform contemporary interpretations of traditional music from around the world.
