The Flying Train Trail

The ancient east has old tales and secrets to tell from strategic marriages, to sun gods and saints surrounded by rivers, lush green lands, an oats factory… A circus train transports an aerial troupe in to the town of Kilmacthomas. Fidget Feet introduced a dramatic vertical dance spectacle to Waterford Greenway with stunning performances on the facade of Kilmacthomas Viaduct. As part of Spraoi 2021, this show was co-commissioned by Waterford Spraoi Festival.

“The Flying Train Trail proved a major attraction during Greenway Spraoi. It showcased Fidget Feet’s imaginative scope and high artistic ambition. Fidget Feet blend music, dance and aerial in shows that ignite audiences’ hearts and minds.”
