In the Open | Faoin Spéir is an Arts Council funded programme developed in response to the COVID-19 crisis for 2021 which will see a variety of outdoor arts events taking place in public spaces around Ireland. As we expectantly emerge from the pandemic in the second half of 2021 and into 2022, In the Open | Faoin Spéir will help to bring a renewed spirit of optimism and confidence in a fulsome return to the arts.

Fidget Feet, in partnership with Clare Arts Office, are bringing In the Open to Ennis with a series of outdoor events over the coming months. The first event will be Fidget Feet’s brand new outdoor show, A Handful of Dreams, currently touring nationwide.

A Handful of Dreams infuses a specially designed outdoor rig with an ancient magic. This beautiful celebration will connect to the hearts of each audience member while restoring the joy of being alive.This magical journey, connecting to your heart, will bring you to a new world where we can dance in the sky! The show is inspired by the poem The Stolen Child by William Butler Yeats (1865–1939). The innovative musical score will be grounded in traditional Irish music and folklore but will embrace a world of contemporary composition and sound design.
