It’s alive! Crochet monsters, home-sick mermaids, punk bands, surreal dance, lush jungle-scapes and more. Wander through a world of wacky wearable art this Saturday 20th of February as the shopfronts of Cuba Street spring into action with fantastical, fashionable living mannequins. Some of the city’s most talented costume designers, set makers, performers and visual artists will be teaming up to fill the coolest little street in the capital with art and colour. Join us to experience this day of incredible one-off installations aimed to enthral, entice, inspire and entertain.
