“Do you know what happened when the moon spun round? When darkness tumbled upon us, the cats came out to play and the mischievous lady of the river explored what lies behind the moon.
A wonderfully dark and dreamy performance for young audiences, with a beautiful display of aerial dance performed by Fidget Feet’s aerial performers entwined with Ceol Connected and Jym Daly’s melodic and enchanting airs.
Inspired by the poetry and stories of WB Yeats, this coming together of artists and performers from the worlds of aerial dance and traditional arts has resulted in a unique experience that is sure to leave audiences of all ages enthralled.
‘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.'”
