The American Company of Irish Dance Presents AISLING
The American Company of Irish Dance proudly presents a brand new entertainment experience and the world premiere of its new show AISLING (ash-ling).
A troubled time is upon us but will the warnings of Aisling be heard?
This is a story of light and love, darkness and unease, healing and hope.
Aisling, the Irish word for dream or vision, tells a story through all new Irish dance choreography, electrifying, newly composed Irish music and threaded together with the poetry of Yeats. The term Aisling also refers to a genre of late 17th century poetry in which a woman appears to the poet in the form of a dream or a vision to deliver a warning. All of these influences, plus characters inspired by Irish mythology drawing from influences like the ‘Tuath De Dannan’ tribe, druids and Celtic gods and goddesses, make for a thrilling entertainment experience, Irish dance as you've never seen it before!
Artistic Directors and choreographers Shane McAvinchey and Paula Goulding, both Riverdance alumni, have created this brand new theatrical production. The newly composed music by Benedict Morris, Cormac Crummey & Pierre O'Reilly is breathtaking and the cast features some of the finest Irish dance talent in the world today.
AMCO is a not-for-profit company whose mission is to educate, elevate and progress Irish dancers and dance as an art form and to showcase it at its best.
