Delve into the rhythms of Ireland's culture
Imagine yourself in an Irish pub, a homely cottage or perhaps at an outdoor gathering. With a live band playing uniquely Irish instruments, three Celtic tenors and a team of splendidly costumed male and female dancers, the Rhythm of the Dance National Tour will set your toes tapping and your hands clapping. The display combines a number of Irish dance forms - Step, Set, Old Style Step and Sean-nos - and reworks them for contemporary times. You'll see the dazzlingly rapid dance routines, with the graceful movements, disciplined control and striking dress of the female dancers, you will hear poignant Irish laments and even familiar folk songs from Dublin, among them the cockles and mussels of Molly Malone. There is no sound quite like that made by ancient Celtic instruments. The Bodhram drum, made of bent wood, was once said to be an Irish war drum, though now its uses are wholly peaceful, while the Irish fiddle makes a lilting sound, louder and more rhythmic than classical violins. As for the Irish harp, it is the evocative symbol of the island itself, and is complemented by use of uilleann pipes (like Scottish bagpipes, though more mellow), Irish flute and low whistle. Conjure up the magic for yourself when you purchase or sell Rhythm of the Dance National Tour tickets at StubHub.
The revival of an ancient national rhythm
It was American dancers of Irish heritage, Jean Butler and Michael Flatley, who sparked the revival of traditional Irish dance, said to date back to ancient, pagan harvest festival rites. They stole the show with Riverdance at the 1994 Eurovision Song Contest held in Dublin, when their interval display catapulted their art form onto an international stage. More than two decades on, Rhythm of the Dance National Tour continues to captivate admiring audiences around the globe. The show is in safe and experienced hands; producer Kieran Cavanagh has worked with Irish international superstar Daniel O'Donnell, Willie Nelson, James Brown, Van Morrison, Johnny Cash and Mary Chapin Carpenter in his career. Let this accomplished cast of performers guide you through a tale of Irish heritage, from the atmospheric prehistoric Newgrange site, through the trials and tribulations of emigration to a triumphant homecoming.
