The Circus of Lir

By Galway Community Circus


Galway Community Circus and Fidget Feet present:

The Circus of Lir

Following from their sold-out shows last year, Ireland's premiere youth circus, Galway Community Circus is continuing its successful collaboration with Ireland’s foremost Aerial Dance Theatre Company Fidget Feet for this contemporary circus spectacle. Combining gravity defying aerial dance, daring vertical dance on harnesses and stunning visual images through video projections, this is a show not to be missed.

The Circus of Lir is a show created and performed by approximately 150 young Galway Community Circus members between 5-20 years of age with the support of the Arts Council Young Ensemble Scheme, Fidget Feet Aerial Dance Theatre, Fanzini Brothers and internationally renowed storyteller Clare Murphy. Intensive rehearsals for the show started in December 2012 and the performances will take place in the Black Box Theatre, Galway on 15th & 16th February 2013.

Galway Community Circus is a charitable organisation built on fun, innovation and a commitment to inspire and empower people through circus arts. Since 2002, they have been at the forefront of teaching circus arts to young people helping them to discover and develop their talents, and in some cases, laying the foundation for a lifelong vocation.

Fidget Feet Aerial Dance Theatre is Ireland’s foremost Aerial Dance Theatre Company based in Co. Westmeath. They have become renowned internationally as a creative organisation that stretches the boundaries between several arts forms, combining aerial skills with contemporary circus and creating theatre fused with aerial dance, music and video art, making contemporary circus and aerial dance accessible.

The €2,500 we are looking for will be used towards essential production costs such as equipment, materials, costumes and rent of the training hall. Please help us make this show possible by donating and spreading the word. We need your help to make this show a reality!
