Feet to the Beat

Sibeal Davitt - Feet to the Beat | Tradoodle 2018

This year at Tradoodle, children can experience the thrill of sean nós dancing as they shuffle and stamp their feet to the beat in this fun-filled workshop. Renowned dancer and musician Sibéal Davitt, known for her appearances on RTÉ’s ‘Centenary’ and TG4’s ‘Glas Vegas’ will introduce children to the lively moves of sean nós. There will be lots of fun, games, movement, and laughter, and a chance for children to create and show off their own brand new fancy footwork!

“Fusing sean-nós with contemporary dance Davitt lets loose, delivering a raw, rhythmic, primal yet playful performance that is searingly powerful and a sheer joy to behold.” – Chris O’Rourke, Irish Examiner

A Winter Wish

A Winter Wish

Following Ceol Connected’s sold out tour of The Quiet Tree at Tradoodle 2017, they return with their newest musical adventures in A Winter Wish.

Every winter in Whistleberry Forest, a little robin comes to visit and grants the creatures of the forest their very own wish – they can wish for whatever they want! From dripping icicles to gentle snowfall, the delight of skating on an icy river or flying high on a moonlit night, discover the mysteries of Whistleberry Forest in a mesmerising traditional music performance made for children. With traditional musicians Thomas Johnston and Stephen Markham, and visual artist Orla Kelly, A Winter Wish is a wonderfully interactive adventure that is sure to have everyone singing along.

Developed with the kind support of Draíocht Blanchardstown.
