Do you like going to see shows? Have you ever played Bingo? Do you or anyone you know have a car? Would you like to play bingo in your car? Would you like to play bingo in your car AND see a spectacular aerial show involving people flying from cranes, dancers, bingo balls and a local Elvis impersonator? Then join us for HOUSE! A fun filled drive-in spectacular, with circus, theatre and bingo.

If you don’t have a car not to worry! Rock up on foot for a slightly bonkers, laughter-filled show with your family and friends.

Fidget Feet returns with their bingo fever to the 1980’s Royal Broadway Parish Bingo. People are dealing with the shocking news that John O’Dowd of Hollywood fame will be replacing the Royal Broadway’s stalwart bingo caller of thirty-years! However there is a clash of scheduled events which leads to a whirlwind of local talent and bizarre spectacle, you’ll be clutching your pearls!

Think Tank

with Andrew Loretto of HatFair

The Think Tanks were set up to research ideas with local artists and the local public and get feedback on future outdoor festival work in LimerickExploring favourite Limerick spaces for future potential work and exploring opportunities for local artists for Riverfest & Limerick going forward.Our shows House! as part of Riverfest Limerick took place over the May Bank holiday weekend. We had such amazing crowds at each show.

In 2022 HOUSE! wowed audiences in Clare, Limerick and Galway. In 2023 we took House! to Kildare, Donegal and Tipperary. The project included community residencies and hundreds of community members, workshops, open days, community rehearsals and performances. 

The shows were staged by our skilled team in 6 venues – not only featuring our highly skilled aerial dance performers…  but also over 300 community cast participants – all performing to over two thousand people over the two years!  

It was such a huge success (and oodles of fun!) that we’re bringing it back in 2024 – this time to Riverfest Limerick and Clifden. This year will see even more community performers and new soar ups added to our amazing lineup 

EVALUATIONS

WHAT IS AERIAL DANCE?

It’s Dance! It’s Creative! It’s flying with style! Combining athleticism & creative expression. While using low-hanging trapeze, aerial silks, spirals, hoops & cocoons. A beautiful art form, while having fun and building strength!
