Culture and Beyond

The brand new sensational dance and music spectacular, Heartbeat of Home presents to the audiences a show filled with stunning visuals, beautiful dance moves and mesmerizing music. The colors are all around, shifting from one hue to another from act to act. For those who have been to a Riverdance show will have an idea of the artistry that can be expected from this new production. The show features thirty skilled dancers as well as ten-piece band which plays mesmerizing score written by the award winning composer, Brian Byrne.

Heartbeat of Home starts off with a sea voyage of different people who are leaving their country to live in another. As the tides shift, the second half of the show comes to the front with the concept of a whole new world. In this half, the cultures mix in a new land. The directors mentioned that this new show aims at representing the “new world” and is more like an open invitation to the cultures of the world to come and dance and become a part of their Irish music. Over the decades, the Irish culture has taken a great shift and today Ireland is longer a monoculture country. All of it is reflected in this new show, which is a must attend for all of the Irish culture lovers.
