Following sold out performances at the London Palladium earlier this year, and having thrilled audiences in Dublin, North America, China and Germany, Heartbeat of Home is heading to London’s Piccadilly Theatre for an extended run, from 4 September to 13 October.
Produced by the team behind Riverdance, Heatbeat of Home is a spine-tingling, high octane, tantalising dance and music extravaganza. The show features dynamic and vibrant components of traditional Irish, Latin, Hip Hop, Afro-Cuban and Contemporary music to bring performers and audiences together on a journey to find a home.
Heartbeat of Home showcases 33 world-class dancers and live musicians from Ireland, the USA, Australia, Canada, Italy, Argentina, Spain, and the UK. Produced by Moya Doherty, conceived and directed by John McColgan with award-winning Irish composer, Brian Byrne, concept development and lyrics by award-winning Irish writer Joseph O’Connor and choreography by David Bolger.
Director John McColgan said, “We are thrilled that Heartbeat of Home is heading to the West End this autumn. This is a show that fuses together Irish dance with flamenco, tap dancing, tango, salsa and hip hop. We want audiences to come out of the show energised and uplifted by this multicultural dance and music spectacle. We can’t wait to be back in London!”
