Tickets on sale this Thursday, 21 March at 9:00am
Heartbeat of Home will premiere at the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre with previews from 25 September and opening on 2 October 2013 for 21 performances only (with special price previews from 25th September to 1st October).
Created by the Producers and Director of Riverdance, Heartbeat of Home is a music and dance spectacular featuring the dynamic, vibrant components of traditional Irish, Latin and Afro-Cuban music and dance. The world-class cast of thirty-eight includes a ten-piece band creating a new and electrifying sound written by award-winning, Golden-Globe-nominated composer Brian Byrne.
The show employs high-definition, cutting-edge 3D projection technology and has an engaging narrative structure. Produced by Moya Doherty, devised and directed by John McColgan with narrative and lyrics by award-winning Irish writer Joseph O'Connor. Joseph comments: `when we marry the sexiness of salsa to the thunder of Irish dance, the lyricism of tango to the yearning of Sean-nós, what a night of storytelling we shall have'.
World-class Irish, Latin and Afro-Cuban dancers will be cast and, with choreography by David Bolger, the production will create a dreamworld of joyous, heart-stopping, high-energy music and dance.
