THE HEAVY DUTY DAME
by Circus Soltis
This family friendly act creates an impression! This Dame is Irelands only Strong Woman, inspired by a long tradition she takes traditional feats of strength and the vintage circus feel and mixes it with a modern soundtrack and styling.
This act is high energy and full of attitude, as the Dame is greeted by gasps and open mouths as she performs astonishing feats of strength with grace and rhythm before she chooses the star of the show, an audience volunteer, and takes them from anonymity to new heights…above her head.
THE QUARE WANS
with Maria Corcoran
The show is a combination of juggling, theatrical storytelling, acrobatics, audience interaction, physical comedy and hula hoop carried along by a bizarre relationship between volunteering festival stewards.
Using classical comedic roles of Joey and August the pair weave a scene for spectators who follow twisted logic and to the point where the pair are auditioning for Ireland's Got Talent. This is a street show for the whole family with a undertone of satire but with a feel good message to follow your dreams.
DO YOU UNDERSTAND
Mother Tongues Festival
Do You Understand? launched the Mother Tongues Festival 2020 in the Civic Theatre Tallaght, it was very well received by the audience and it was followed by a workshop session with circus performers where the young people taught the audience some of circus skills they had learnt.
This was a pilot project and due to its success the group have been invited back to perform at the Mother Tongue Festival 2021.
"Rock Hard Roxy" is comedy strong woman, who performs genuine feats of strength in the character of a fierce infomercial saleswoman.
It features risque word-plays, audience interaction and side splitting punchlines. Roxy is here to revolutionize your fitness routine, banish the gym to the history books and to empty your wallet!
