Dancers to 'Hang On' at Longford's Backstage Theatre

Next Wednesday Fidget Feet will be doing what they do best with ‘Hang On’, mixing aerial skills with dance and performing to original live music and video art.

‘Hang On’ brings the suited denizens of the business world into the sumo wrestler’s circle of combat.

‘Hang On’ mixes an aerial dance trapeze duet with a love musical performance in a thrilling struggle between the sexes.

Hurried along by the relentless beat of time, Lee and Chantal wonder if there is a worthy destination, or are they just running around in circles?

Should they fight the pulse of time or should they just hang on and hope for a moment of stillness, a moment of clarity?

‘Hang On’ is danced by two outstanding aerial dancers - highly physical, raw and sometimes sexy but always real.

‘Hang On’ has performed in theatres and streets across the entire globe since its creation in 2010, and we are pleased to re-stage and extend the piece into a full length show and tour across Irish venues in 2017 funded by the Arts Council.

The show will be at the Backstage Theatre on Wednesday March 8 at 8pm. Fidget Feet will also be performing ‘Strange Feathers’ at 9.45am and 11am for schools and pre-schoolers. Tickets available at (043) 33 47888 or www.backstage.ie.
