On the bus down to London for a little break and Facebook has reminded me of my first ever production, Leanaí an hOíche.
Leanaí an hOíche was a circus theatre show based off Irish ghost stories (a personal favourite of mine). Each performer was given a story to create their act around and it was honestly too difficult to pick my favourite piece.
One of my biggest dreams is to actually make this show a touring show or have a run in the Dublin Fringe. BUT there’s a lot more work to go in now that I’m a lot more experienced. The performers were flawless and we got a standing ovation so it’s a hard one to top!!
Hard to believe it’s been 4 years since I did this show! .
