Bunbeg, Bunbeg Pier
8pm – €15/€12
A new co-commissioned site-specific theatre piece by Earagail Arts Festival and the team who made She Knit The Roof and Destination Donut, Foyle Punt is the first project of The Local Group, a new company making unique performance projects in off-the-grid locations, bringing the best theatre and interdisciplinary performance to underserved communities in Ireland’s most rugged rural landscapes and concrete suburbia.
The jewel among them is the Foyle Punt, a racing boat that only the McDonalds make. Philip and Brian McDonald are the last boatbuilders in this line.
What value does an old punt carry in the north-west, and what use is a small wooden boat like this today? Featuring Philip McDonald, and Libyan-Irish singer Farah Elle, Foyle Punt explores the unique history, craft and skill that runs through McDonald veins to imagine a new kind of future for small boats in safe harbours.
