The Second Coming
This performance is now SOLD OUT.
On this day begins an inspired journey to life rediscovered. Ireland’s greatest poet, W. B. Yeats has returned. This is the story of his second coming.
The Second Coming is a spectacle – a feast for the senses featuring traditional Irish music and dance, theatre, film and aerial circus. Witness a gravity-defying troupe of performers who will leave you spellbound.
Come and see the heart of Irish culture being set free and given wings to fly.
“... not only was our culture being set free, but it was being given wings to fly...” - Julian Erskine (Riverdance)
Welcome to our controlled explosion of the traditional world.
Yeats has returned.
This is the story of his second coming.
This is the music of our world wrapped around the visual beauty of the next.
This is the earthy rhythms of Ireland catapulted up into the air.
This is The Second Coming.
Fidget Feet Aerial Dance Theatre are a group renowned for breaking down the barriers of the traditional. Produced with the Hawk’s Well Theatre Sligo, in this show we bring together story, music, aerial circus and dance, examining the old and infusing it with the new.
Come and see the heart of Irish culture within the soul of its greatest poet.
