Beauty and raw phys­i­cal­ity

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - NEWS -

A show fea­tur­ing grav­ity-de­fy­ing acro­bat­ics, aerial dance and elec­tri­fy­ing physical artistry is com­ing to the Mer­maid Arts Cen­tre. Per­formed by Aisling Ní Cheal­laigh and Ro­nan Brady, ‘How to Square a Cir­cle’ com­bines cir­cus and theatre in a pro­duc­tion which boasts both beauty and raw phys­i­cal­ity.

Di­rected by Ray­mond Keane and ac­com­pa­nied by the mu­sic and sound­scapes of award win­ning com­poser Alma Kel­li­her, How to Square Cir­cle ex­plores the lim­its of the hu­man body and soul in a man­ner that will both awe and in­spire.

And while the show is a vis­ual sen­sa­tion it is also a heart-warm­ing story of friend­ship, ego, love and the joys a cup of tea. With grav­ity de­fy­ing acro­bat­ics, aerial dance, cyr wheel and lots of laugh­ter, two of Ire­land’s lead­ing cir­cus per­form­ers prove that just be­cause some­thing is im­pos­si­ble, doesn’t mean it’s not worth try­ing.

De­scribed as ‘mirac­u­lous’ by The Guardian, How to Square a Cir­cle will be per­formed in the Mer­maid Arts Cen­tre on Jan­uary 11, 2020.

Tick­ets are from €11 on sale from lo­cal box of­fice and fringe dates avail­able from www. fringe­fest.com
