When the Moon Spun Round

Fidget Feet & Ceol Connected


Sat 14 Oct - Tue 17 Oct

It was the cats who noticed it first; the moon had spun round. And with a great and mischievous smile, the moon asked for a new dance for all.

An enchanting show featuring a playful mix of contemporary aerial dance, and traditional music played out by tricksters in the moonlight. Come on an imaginative journey of joyful movement, where a fiddler soars high, and cloths made from the night and light and half-light are suspended, float and fall. Let the dance, dance you!

This charming and uplifting take on WB Yeats’ stories and poetry is inspired by ‘When the Moon Spun Round’ edited by Noreen Doody and illustrated by Shona Shirley Macdonald.
