Previously Posted: The producers of Riverdance have announcd that Heartbeat of Home, their extraordinary dance and music extravaganza that embraces flavours and cultures from around the world, will run at the Piccadilly Theatre from September 11 (previews from September 4) to October 13, 2019.

Heartbeat of Home is described as a spine-tingling, tantalizing, high octane, sexy, dance and music extravaganza. It is a heart–stopping tour de force that features the dynamic, vibrant components of traditional Irish, Latin, Hip-Hop, Afro-Cuban and Contemporary music and dance, uniting performers and audiences on journeys to find a home, wherever that may be.

The new West End dates follow sold out performances at the London Palladium earlier this year and audience acclaim in Dublin, North America, China and Germany.

Heartbeat of Home showcases 33 world-class dancers and live musicians from Ireland, U.S.A, Australia, Britain, Canada, Italy, Argentina and Spain.

Produced by Moya Doherty and conceived and directed by John McColgan with award-winning Irish composer, Brian Byrne (who has worked with Katy Perry and Barbara Streisand), Heartbeat of Home has concept development and lyrics by award-winning Irish writer Joseph O’Connor and choreography by David Bolger.

The Heartbeat of Home creative team also includes John Carey (Irish Dance Choreography), Alan Farquharson (Set Design), David Torpey/Image Now and David Mattias/COSMO (Set Projection Design), Peter Canning (Lighting Design), Ciarán Byrne (Sound Design), Monica Ennis and Niamh O’Connor (Costumes Styling) and Padraic Moyles (Associate Director).

McColgan said: “We are thrilled that Heartbeat of Home is heading to the West End this Autumn. This is a show that fuses together Irish dance with flamenco, tap dancing, tango, salsa and hip hop. We want audiences to come out of the show energized and uplifted by this multicultural dance and music spectacle. We can’t wait to be back in London!”
