Acts from Ireland and around the world lined up to bring the very best of international street theatre to Waterford.  Spraoi’s commitment to the creation and development of new Irish work remains central to the company’s ethos.  We were delighted to present one World Premiere in 2017 from a Waterford company, as well as the return of the NEST Stage (New Emerging Street Talent), featuring three shows in development.   

The street art programme included 8 Irish premieres, with acts from 8 countries.  There was also a “Retrospective” strand to this year’s programme, where some acts previously seen at Spraoi who have, by audience reaction, proven to be the some of the most popular acts seen in Waterford over the last 25 years.
