This summer we bring you a new dance theatre show. We have collected a vibrant combination of dancers, musicians and singers whose disciplines complement each other beautifully to bring one of Ireland’s oldest myths to life.

About the show:
The Irish people are a people of somewhere else. Our mythology tells us so. From the perspective of Eithlinn, locked in her a crystal tower on Tory Island, Candlelit Tales and their ensemble will use melody, dance and rhythm to bring to life the tales of the first peoples of Ireland. Using music, movement and visuals we will capture your imagination; but be warned, we might not give it back.
