Following its world-premiere engagement and a sold-out run in Ireland and China, Heartbeat of Home — the new music and dance spectacular created by the producers and director of Riverdance — will play Toronto, Chicago, Detroit, Boston, New York City and Los Angeles beginning in January 2014.



Produced by Moya Doherty and conceived and directed by John McColgan with lyrics and narrative by award-winning Irish writer Joseph O’Connor, Heartbeat of Home showcases dancers from Ireland, USA, Australia, Britain, Canada, Italy, Mexico and Spain with choreography by David Bolger.

Heartbeat, which features music penned by Golden Globe-nominated composer Brian Byrne, is described as a "tantalizing, high octane, sexy, music and dance extravaganza. This heart–stopping tour de force features the dynamic, vibrant components of traditional Irish, Latin and Afro-Cuban music and dance."

The creative team also includes John Carey (Irish dance choreography), Alan Farquharson (set design), David Torpey/Image Now (projection design), Peter Canning (lighting design), Ciaran Byrne (sound design), Monica Ennis and Niamh O’Connor (costumes styling) and Padraic Moyles (assistant director).
