Anti-Capitalism: The Musical

Last weekend in March (28th – 30th) we will be enjoing the GALWAY DANCE DAYS 2014, 3 days of world premieres of site-specific performances, installations, workshops & events. The shows will take place in several locations in NUI Galway and in the streets of the City. Check the times and get the tickets here


Among the performances there is this one by Deirdre Murphy, named “Anti-Capitalism. The musical” that we won’t miss:

A fairytale of musical theatre, using circus, song, and dance to create a near-future political reality similar to our own. A large scale theatrical narrative with a cast of 15 dancers, singers, circus performers, actors and a live band, it uses acrobatics, plot twists, assassinations, and intrigue to tell the tale of a heroic group of everyday acrobats, aided by the Greek-chorus style narrations of a powerful triumvirate of fairy godmothers.

Saturday 29th March at 20 h and Sunday 30th March at 19 h. at  The Cube, NUI Galway. Tickets are 13 €

It’s the Dirty Circus April Fools Party!!!

Ladies wear your finest, Gentlemen dress like…gentlemen.


Feathers, hats, corsets, fishnets stockings,  dramatic make up…

So it’s time for cabaret renaissence in Galway, this occassion for April Fools Party. The Dirty Circus is a group of people in Galway that tours around the city recruiting its best cabaret and burlesque performers.

It seems it has always been a success since they performed in The Cellar, De Burgos and  like this time, Kelly’s. There’s dancing, singing, music, poetry, comedy and lots more always with a 1920’s feather touch and decadence…and loads of fun!

Wether it’s your first time or you’re one of the regulars dress yourself up with a smart suit and tie (that’s for you guys) or put on your best night outfit (here’s for you girls)…there might be a chance to win a prize for the best well dressed lady of the night.

Don’t think twice, dress you up and have a fun night!
