Schools’ Aerial Project 2013
Hope, fear, anger, rebellion, challenge. How do the young people of today live in a world where things are constantly changing? Witness an explosion of physical energy as 45 students from Ardscoil Phadraig, Elphin Community College and Templemichael College explore how the elements around us affect our lives. This is not a show for the faint-hearted as they literally hang from the rafters and drive each other up the walls. Working with internationally acclaimed Fidget Feet Aerial Dance Theatre Company, the students have trained together for 15 days, learning how to dance, climb, tumble, fall and fly.
In its third year, the Schools’ Aerial Project has grown to involve three schools from Counties Longford and Roscommon. We would like to thank the VECs of both counties; the Parents’ Councils of all three schools and the Creative Engagement Fund from the NAPD.
Shows take place on Monday 4th March at 8pm; Tuesday 5th March at 12 noon and 8pm. Tickets are available directly from the Backstage Theatre box office at 043-3347888. Tickets cost €5 for children, €10 for adults.
