Created by the Producers and Director of Riverdance, Heartbeat of Home is a music and dance spectacular featuring the dynamic, vibrant components of traditional Irish, Latin and Afro-Cuban music and dance. The world-class cast of thirty-nine includes a ten-piece band creating a new and electrifying sound written by award-winning, Golden-Globe-nominated, composer Brian Byrne.
The World Premiere of Heartbeat of Home took place at The Bord Gáis Energy Theatre Dublin on Wednesday 2nd October. Audience response was hugely positive with each performance receiving sustained applause and multiple standing ovations. Press reaction can be best summed up with the quotations: ‘ an extraordinary show... jaw-dropping... inspiringly imaginative ..... a tour de force... sexy, electrifying'.
The show employs high-definition, cutting-edge projection technology and has an engaging narrative structure. Produced by Moya Doherty, conceived and directed by John McColgan with lyrics and narrative by award-winning Irish writer Joseph O'Connor. Joseph comments: ‘when we marry the sexiness of salsa to the thunder of Irish dance, the lyricism of tango to the yearning of sean-nós, what a night of storytelling we shall have'. With world-class dancers from Ireland, USA, Australia, Britain, Canada, Italy, Mexico and Spain and choreography by David Bolger, the production creates a dreamworld of joyous, heart-stopping, high-energy music and dance.
