EIREBORNE – Irish dance show
Australia’s hit new Irish rock show has taken off around the globe after sell-out success in Australia and Europe and is now returning by popular demand. EIREBORNE is more than an Irish dance show, but a current and contemporary theatrical experience like no other, taking traditional Irish music and dance to a whole new level.
This highly fuelled rock show production is slicker than your average Irish show and has an attitude to match, with 15 World-class Irish dancers that hit the floor alongside a rockin’ live six-piece band and two lead vocalists performing a soundtrack of all-time-hits from Irish born artists such as: U2, Snow Patrol, Van Morrison, Hozier, The Script, The Cranberries, and more.
Showcasing a fast-paced 90-minute spectacle with larger-than-life individuals and multi-talented artists on stage, EIREBORNE is a concert performance with a noticeable point of difference within its genre. It’s 100% live on stage.
The lead narrator of the show, played by Toby Francis (fresh from We Will Rock You: Arena Spectacular) welcomes his rocking band (with Reigan Derry, Australian Idol, Scarlett Belle, X Factor on lead vocals) performing both traditional and modern world-famous Irish hits. Dancers from international Irish shows such as Riverdance and Lord of the Dance kick up their heels, performing traditional and modern Irish dance as well as ballroom and tap.
Fronting the 15-strong dance ensemble is former Riverdance cast member, Peta Anderson. Along with co-directing the production, Peta’s choreography showcases her unique ability to fuse the styles of Irish dance with tap rhythms and beats. Peta was the winner of Irish RTE’s Dance Off, a lead dancer in the Drama Desk Award-nominated off-Broadway Irish production Noctu and is a Capezio sponsored athlete.
