Watch both, and Marisha Wallace, talk about the future of the West End show.
Dance and music extravaganza Heartbeat Of Home is set to return to the UK for a special limited West End run from September 2019.
Previews will begin on 4 September 2019 with the show opening on 11 September 2019.
“We are thrilled that Heartbeat of Home is heading to the West End this Autumn,” says show director John McColgan. “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!”
Heartbeat Of Home welcomes performers to the stage for a modern take on traditional music and dance. It blends together Irish, Latin, hip-hop, Afro-Cuban and contemporary dance, accompanied by a live six piece playing music by award-winning Irish composer Brian Byrne. All is surrounded by state of the art video projections.
The ensemble includes dancers from across the globe, including Ireland, the USA, Australia, Britain, Canada, Italy, Argentina and Spain.
The show is produced by Moya Doherty, conceived and directed by John McColgan, with concept and lyrics by Irish writer Joseph O’Connor. Choreography comes from David Bolger.
Heartbeat Of Home sold out its run at the London Palladium earlier this year, having toured across the globe including Irish capital Dublin, as well as North America, China and Germany.
The show is now set to arrive at London’s Piccadilly Theatre for an extended West End run.
Heartbeat Of Home will preview from 4 September 2019, opening on 11 September and booking until 13 October 2019. The show will run at approximately 1 hour 50 minutes including interval, with performances Monday – Saturday at 19:30, and a 14:30 on Thursday and Saturday. There will also be a 15:00 performance on Sundays.
Fans can access Heartbeat Of Home tickets 24 hours early in our presale.
