Festival Opening

To mark the beginning of our epic Festival adventure, Ten Days on the Island has invited hundreds of local performers and community groups to gather en masse from across the North of the island at dawn, to breathe as one in a shared moment of reflection and ritual.

Join us for an unforgettable experience, celebrating the first light of day with music, dance, performance and poetry inspired by the elements that surround us – the sky, the sea, the winds and the landscape. This unique community performance, featuring Ulverstone’s Slipstream Circus, will be co-created by Lindy Hume and Adam Wheeler, artistic directors of Ten Days on the Island and Tasdance, in collaboration with artist and cultural adviser David Mangenner Gough.

Set your alarm early on 8 March (International Women’s Day) if you want to secure a good vantage point, because mapali – DAWN GATHERING begins as the sun rises at 7AM.
