AISLING

June 16 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

$30 – $65

An all-new Irish dance theatrical production presented by the American Company of Irish Dance.

Aisling, the Irish word for dream or vision, tells a story through all-new Irish dance choreography, electrifying, newly composed Irish music and threaded together with the poetry of Yeats. The term Aisling also refers to a genre of late 17th-century poetry in which a woman appears to the poet in the form of a dream or a vision to deliver a warning. All of these influences, plus characters inspired by Irish mythology drawing from influences like the ‘Tuath De Dannan’ tribe, druids, and Celtic gods and goddesses, make for a thrilling entertainment experience, Irish dance as you’ve never seen it before!

Artistic Directors and choreographers Shane McAvinchey and Paula Goulding, both Riverdance alumni, have created this brand new theatrical production. The newly composed music by Benedict Morris, Cormac Crummey, and Pierre O’Reilly is breathtaking and the cast features some of the finest Irish dance talent in the world today.

AMCO is a not-for-profit dance company whose mission is to educate, elevate and progress Irish dancers and dance as an art form and to showcase it at its best.
