Ériu: Countless Cathleens

The Black Box

This show is now over. Please see our full listing for other shows you might enjoy.

Set in a ‘cosmic’ dressing room of sorts, where the countdown to curtain is never-ending, Countless Cathleens is a dance-theatre comedy where principal female dancers from across time coexist. As they prepare for the show, warming up, doing their make-up, and generally killing time, they play out the drama and politics that go with the job.

Whilst they are all oppressed and exploited in some way by the industry (and very good at being oppressive to each other), their similarities ultimately unite them as they join forces in the name of womanhood and equality.

Original music is by Beoga.

Duration: 65 mins, no interval
