Filled with dance and live music, this theatrical production by David Bolger takes children and their families on a thrilling adventure to explore and discover contemporary dance and performance at its best.

Watch out… The Wolf is coming!

Founded in 1995, CoisCéim’s style of performance is contemporary and vibrant, with a knowing regard forthe everyday. Artistic Director, David Bolger embraces a selection of dance styles to articulate stories and emotions that are relevant to the landscapes in which we live. The scale of the company's work ranges from duets in a hotel bedroom, (Chamber Made) to the large-scale spectacle, A Dash of Colour (which was seen by millions on television and involved over 75,000 people for the opening ceremony of the Special Olympics, 2003). The name comes from the Irish word for footstep and is pronounced “Kush Came”.
