Anam ‘Soul’ by The National Folk Theatre of Ireland.

June 17, 2023 @ 7:30 pm

Experience the captivating performance of “Anam ‘Soul'” by The National Folk Theatre of Ireland.

Co-commissioned by Dublin Dance Festival and The National Folk Theatre of Ireland in 2016, Anam (meaning ‘soul’) brings together the talents of world-class step dancers from the US, Canada, and Ireland in an exhilarating fusion of styles. Following its successful tour of Ireland in 2017, which received acclaim and standing ovations from audiences across the country, it has now become a celebrated part of our Festival of Folk production series.

Authentic and raw, this percussive dance piece delves into the similarities and differences between the dancers, each showcasing their distinct hard shoe style. Anam pays homage to the tradition of ‘passing on,’ celebrating the essential spirit of dance while injecting it with fresh energy to create something new.

Performed with live music and song by the acclaimed musician Fergal O’Murchú, the production features dancers Matthew Olwell (Appalachian Flat Foot), Jonathan Kelliher (North Kerry “Munnix”), Nathan Pilatzke (Ottawa Valley, Canada), and Jason O’Neill (Modern Irish).

Directed by Jonathan Kelliher and Sue Ellen McCarthy, this limited-run show is exclusive to Siamsa Tíre and cannot be viewed in any other venue. It offers a truly authentic experience that should not be missed!
