The "Eachtra" show

Multimedialny spektakl pełen muzyki i tańca

Multimedia show full of dance and music. By melding elements of Irish, Scottish, Welsh and Breton cultures it enchants the audience and tempts them to embark on a journey together with the artists (in Irish Gaelic eachtra/pronunciation: achtra/ means adventure or voyage).

Graceful soft choreographies and energetic Irish step dance are set off by Celtic landscapes. The sounds of violin, accordion, saxophone, guitar and drums are entwined with the melody of the recited poems, which are rooted in the Gaelic tradition.

Eachtra: Eachtra is an unforgettable adventure, a lesson of history and geography given by means of word, music, image and movement. It is a journey in time and space which we want to share with the audience of theaters, cultural centres, and outdoors festivals.
