We are delighted to announce the national tour of How to Square a Circle, Aisling Ní Cheallaigh and Ronan Brady’s brand new blend of circus and theatre is coming to the Alley Theatre. Following international tours with Fidget Feet Aerial Dance and THISISPOPBABY, these home grown artists have created a stunning new production that boasts both beauty and raw physicality. Staring Aisling Ní Cheallaigh and Ronan Brady, directed by Raymond Keane and accompanied by the music and soundscapes of award winning composer Alma Kelliher, How to Square Circle explores the limits of the human body and soul in a manner that will both awe and inspire.

How to Square a Circle is a heart warming story of friendship, ego, love and the joys a cup of tea. With gravity defying acrobatics, aerial dance, cyr wheel and lots of laughter, two of Ireland’s leading circus performers prove that just because something is impossible, doesn’t mean it’s not worth trying.

Supported by The Arts Council of Ireland and Roscommon Arts Centre.
