CoisCéim Dance Theatre’s FRANCIS FOOTWORK by David Bolger, a magical, marvelous take on dancing to your own tune, is presented for young audiences (7-11y) in 180° Virtual Reality .

Once upon a dance floor… in a kingdom not so far away, lived Francis Footwork. When kind-hearted King Two Lefties ascends to the throne, he is tricked by trusted adviser Colonel Headbanger to rule the land with an iron fist. He wants to end all dancing. So Francis teaches him a dance lesson he will never forget! FRANCIS FOOTWORK is an uplifting, empowering tale that celebrates individuality and encourages everyone to dance their own dance and includes Creative Dance Tales workshops led by Olwyn Lyons.

“Joyful, clever, entertaining… Francis Footwork is a pure and simple delight. – The Irish Times
“A magical, marvelous take on dancing to your own tune” – The Sunday Business Post
