The Street Performance World Championship in Dublin is another highlight of our summer calendar. It was actually renamed this year as the Laya Healthcare City Spectacular. We try to go every year and catch a performance or two in Merrion Square.First up was Derek Derek. He spent a good amount of time miming and clowning around getting various kids and other audience members to help set up his pole. He then wowed the crowd with acrobatic moves performed high above the cold hard street.
Yukinko Akira was the other act that we caught this year. Hailing from Japan, he mixed tunes while creating imaginative artwork on the spot.
