Fabulous Beast (Ireland)

Co-produced by Fabulous Beast Dance Theatre and Sadler’s Wells, London.

Contemporary dance meets traditional Irish folk and music from around the world in this uplifting show from “one of the most daring and highly original dance theatre companies in the world” (The Times).

Its celebratory spirit is the result of a collaboration between choreographer Michael Keegan-Dolan (Giselle) and Liam Ó Maonlaí of popular band The Hothouse Flowers. A joyous sense of community is created on stage by eight dancers and five musicians, who present “the sort of scene you would be lucky to come across in an Irish pub these days” (Irish Times).

“An evening of buoyant rhythms and happy atmosphere; it really does feel like a party on stage.”
- The Independent

“This is nothing like the commercialised simplicity of riverdance. This is art reflecting real life back to us, with a cast representing many different cultural backgrounds.” - Canberra Critic

“…A wonderful, joyful experience which mixed narrative and physical theatre, with dance and song. The show climaxed with an encore that featured audience members dancing on the stage alongside dancers and musicians.” - Cork Independent
