Heartbeat of Home to transfer to the Piccadilly Theatre
Produced by the company behind Riverdance, Heartbeat of Home is a celebration of music and performances styles from around the globe. Blending Latin, contemporary, hip-hop and Irish dance steps, the production sets out to unite performers and audiences on an adrenaline-fuelled journey through dance.
Concept and direction for Heartbeat of Home is by John McColgan. Commenting on the production’s West End transfer, he said: “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 energized and uplifted by this multicultural dance and music spectacle. We can’t wait to be back in London!”
The creative team will also feature music by Brian Byrne, lyrics by Joseph O’Connor, choreography by David Bolger and Irish dance choreography by John Carey. Set design is by Alan Farquharson, lighting design by Peter Canning, sound design by Ciarán Byrne and costumes by Monica Ennis and Niamh O’Connor.
33 dancers will take to the stage for each performance, with details on casting to be announced. The performers will also be joined by live musicians on stage from Europe, Australia and North America.
Heartbeat of Home tickets will go on sale on 10th May.
