About this show

Internationally acclaimed and legendary theater company Mabou Mines launches its 40th anniversary season of groundbreaking theater with the world premiere of Finn, a digital and live action adventure based on the timeless legend of Finn McCool (Fionn macCumhaill). Finn explores the ideology and cultural embodiment of a young boy's quest to become a warrior. It follows the coming of age journey of Finn as he seeks to avenge his father's death leading him to choose between a life of vengeance and violence, or a life of tolerance and moral courage. This unique theater work blends traditional storytelling with video game technology and Laterna Magika, sleight of hand techniques used in Czech Theater. Large-scale digital animation, poetic text and traditional music combine to illustrate this powerful tale. Live performers, virtual characters and animated settings create an expansive fantasy world pushing the boundaries of live theater to new limits.
