Rian – Fabulous Beast

11. September 8:00 am


The stage is an emerald green circle. A fiddle, a tin whistle and pipes can be heard. We’re obviously in Ireland. While the musicians play traditional Irish tunes, the dancers, inspired by great choreographer Michael Keegan-Dolan, break out in abandon, in dances rich with not only Gaelic but also African and Spanish influences and suddenly, we’re in the middle of an exuberant global party of whirling, swirling, stomping moves. All the while, Liam Ó Maonlaí‘s haunting and melodious voice can be heard in the background.
