BIG “WOW” act – Celtic Surprise
Celtic Surprise: Generally performed on reinforced tables but a stage or floor can be used.
At an agreed time in the evening a haunting sound of ancient Celtic music can be heard echoing in the room. Cloaked figures carrying candles move majestically through the crowd. They form a guard of honour along the long walls of the room as an imposing figure, our bodhrán player, enters.
He enters the middle of the and without saying a word, he starts drumming with an increasing intensity solo and interacts with the audience. During this time some of the cloaked figures have also made their way into the middle of the room.
Then with a loud cry and a commanding strike to the bodhrán, the dancers drop their cloaks and erupt into a spectacular hard shoe acappella performance. This generally results in an immediate outburst of spontaneous applause from an astounded audience! The piece continues with the appearance of a Celtic Warrior Drummer who enters the room. There is a trade-off between the bodhrán and the drum. At the end of this show-down, the drummer has apparently lost the fight, but he has one last trick up his sleeve. To the delight of the crowd, he finally calls 4 female dancers to join him. After one more routine, all 8 dancers and 2 percussionists perform a spectacular hard shoe routine on the guests’ dining tables. A powerful dance off on the tables then ensues, percussion versus dancers in a sensational duel of rhythm, noise and exhilaration!
As an Optional Extra –
The dancers then take to the stage where they perform a further 10 min show of rapid footwork, graceful elegance and diverse choreography, culminating in a “Riverdance” style finale. With the use of some theatrical lighting effects, this short but breathtaking performance with its climactic finish will astound any audience and leave them wanting more.
Cost for the Show which includes 8 dancers, the Bodhran Player/ Irish dancer, a Celtic Drummer/Irish dancer, 4 stage helpers, Stage Manager, a PA and wireless mic for the bodhran and Insurance.
