The Source Arts Centre & Thurles Halloween Festival Presents

Fidget Feet’s


Dates: Saturday 27th of October at 7.30pm

Venue: The Source Arts Centre

Even in the air, the chase is on.

Red Riding Hood takes flight in this classic fairy tail with an aerial circus spin.

From the company that brought you A Fairies’ Tail and Snow Queen, Catch Me is suitable for children and adults aged 8 years and over. Come and watch this thrilling story being re-told as Red Riding Hood and the Wolf swing high above the audience in a forest of over 250 metres of rope.

Full of Fidget Feet’s trademark playfulness, Catch Me is a stunning mix of aerial feats and theatre. Using an original score and visual projections that are mixed like a painting and come alive around the performers, no two shows can ever be the same.

A pint-sized Cirque du Soleil originating from Donegal. Fidget Feet Aerial Dance Theatre is an internationally renowned company that is one of Ireland’s own.
