    Created 2009-08-30 by Anna Rosenfelder

    Location: Urban - Co. Dublin

    Duration: 2009-08-30 to 2009-08-30

Project Outline

The Safari Sock Performance trail was comissioned by the Dun Laoghaire Festival of World Cultures as part of  "Great Explorations! Around the world in one day!" . This was the theme of an adventure packed program which filled the People�s Park on the Festival Sunday.

Twenty children were invited to become young explorers: equipped with a sock puppet each , they embarked on an interactive one hour journey around the world- led by two curious explorers (puppeteer Anna Rosenfelder, musician Eoin O Brien ) and a courageous Sock Puppet . 

Inspired by the locations in people�s park (Bandstand, Bengal Tiger tent, African Plains Picnic area, Anatarctic Explorer�s tent), the expedition featured a number of challenges and adventures: the group climbed up mount Everest, escaped a furocious Bengal Tiger, learned a hungarian folk dance , listened to an african tale and made their way through a self-made tunnel to anarctica and a final penguins�dance.
