Patrick 2018 - Westport Town Hall

The Story of Ireland’s Patron Saint
Live Music, Song, Dance & Storytelling

Described in the national media as a “tour de force” and following sell-out performances over the summers of 2016-17, “Patrick” returns Monday nights for July and August 2018. The show centers on original pieces of live music, dance and cinematic imagery as collaborative forms of narration to explore the story of Ireland’s Patron Saint – Patrick.

This production leaves the starring role to the story – brought to you by Declan Askin, with original music composed and performed by Des Cafferkey and Bart De Boer. Heading up the majestic dancing and rebel-rousing sean-nós is award-winning choreographer Liam Scanlon, tapped off in equal measure by world champion Ela Kohen-Murray with Aaron Glancy and Ryan Owens – each performer displaying their own unique style and place in the performance. One of the most poignant parts of the show is the cameo by young Beibhinn Askin who transports the audience to a time when immigration had the Irish people in its firm grip – all done in the most endearing way with the song “Ellis Island”.

Running from the 2nd July to the 20th of August 2018.
