"Thankfully, Irish Company Fidget Feet shuns empty virtuosity for the richer expression derived from contemporary dance."

The Irish Times

The complex dynamics of a simple night out.

Breathtaking circus, gravity- defying aerial dance work and erotic, fragile and fierce, Raw is an electrifying and dreamlike evocation of hedonistic nightlife. The Dj slips into a shamanic mode the infects te clubbers and as the night enfolds the story explores the balance between strenghth and vulnerability, violence and harmony, laughter and tears. Raw explores themes of identity, fear and power and asks questions of our attitude to clubland.
Directed by Fringe First winner David Bolger Artistic director of mulit award winning from CoisCeim Dance Theatre Ireland.

“If aerialism has often been relegated to a sideshow, a circus trick, RAW places it centre stage and opens its possibilities.”
