Behind the Dark

day icon
Time 20.30 & 22.00
Date October 28th - October 30th
Location St. Anne's Park, D.3

A spectacular fusion of aerial acrobatics and dance, staged deep in St. Anne’s Park, Clontarf, the homestead of Bram Stoker.

A crowd moves torchlit through the shadow of the woods… Exploring a mind on the edge of fear, Behind the Dark uses a copse of trees as its stage. Exploring the darkness both without and within, moving from the surreal to the ecstatic, and shot through with moments of unsettling beauty and raw, savage power, this event features breathtaking acrobatics accompanied by an original score pulsing with menace.

An ‘unmissable’ (The Irish Times) experience – a modern Irish circus spectacle, unique and powerful.

Age 12+ with parental guidance. Outdoor performance in a wooded area. Please dress appropriately. Contains strobe lighting. Venue has accessibility restrictions.


Running time – approx. 50 mins

Tickets €15.00.
