Táin Bó Cúailnge

Candlelit Tales bring their unique telling of the Táin Bó Cúailnge to life with a new and exciting element of shadow puppetry. Atmospheric, evocative, and lyrically beautiful, audiences will hear this ancient story as it has never before been told.

Relaxed, informal storytelling with musical accompaniment is the cornerstone around which Candlelit Tales’ productions are built, bringing in a collective of storytellers, dancers, puppeteers and musicians dedicated to the revival of lost Irish mythological stories. The sensation of hearing a story rather than reading one or seeing one acted out, is both familiar and strange. It takes us back to childhood, adn lets our own imaginations fill in the blanks. The atmospheric shadow puppetry enhances the experience, lending a stirring visual element to the storytelling which is sure to delight audiences of all ages.
