What lies behind the moon once it spins round? An aerial performance entwined with Irish folk music that will leave audiences of all ages enthralled.

***** “Joyous… magical… visually spellbinding” Irish Times

Come on an imaginative journey where aerial performers dance and toss like the waves of the sea; where a fiddler soars high; where the moon delights with its beauty and where darkness falls to reveal a new dance for all. And let’s not forget! the very mysterious antique lady of the river whose feathers explore what lies behind the moon once it spins round!

A wonderfully dark and dreamy performance for young audiences with a beautiful display of aerial dance performed by Fidget Feet’s aerial performers entwined with Ceol Connected and Jym Daly’s melodic and enchanting airs.

Ireland’s leading Circus Company Fidget Feet Aerial Dance Theatre have teamed up with the virtuosic traditional music company Ceol Connected to co-create a magical new show for young audiences.

Inspired by the poetry and stories of WB Yeats, this coming together of artists and performers from the worlds of aerial dance and traditional arts has resulted in a unique experience that is sure to leave audiences of all ages enthralled.

“It was the cats who noticed it first; the moon had spun round. And with a great and mischievous smile, the moon asked for a new dance for all.”

Matinee show Thursday at 11am – please contact the box office directly to book on 0749120777.
