CoisCéim Dance Theatre | Ireland | Dance

Francis Footwork

Dancing is like dreaming with your feet.
But Colonel Headbanger doesn’t like dreams as they can give people ideas. And people with ideas can be dangerous.

Once upon a dance floor, in a kingdom not so far away, lived Francis Footwork. Francis is no ordinary girl, in fact, she is an extraordinary dancer. When King Two Lefties ascends to the throne, trusted adviser Colonel Headbanger tricks him into ruling the land with an iron fist. He wants to put an end to all dancing! So, Francis decides to teach him a dance lesson he will never forget.

From the company that brought you the international, award-winning hit ‘The Wolf and Peter‘ comes a magical, empowering new tale from David Bolger that celebrates individuality and encourages everyone to dance their own dance.
