Macnas' Noeline Kavanagh on the Epic of Gilgamesh

I came across the story of Gilgamesh in 2015. I was thinking about myths and legends and was interested in the origin story, the template for our own Irish legends and so many others. What came before the Icelandic Sagas, Homer's Odyssey and Cúchulainn? And because of the way we make our work in Macnas, I wanted to find a story that would fit the artistic brief – large scale, epic, universal – and allow us to really push ourselves creatively as artists and makers.
