Shadows of the Táin
By Candlelit Tales


The Táin is Ireland’s greatest epic tale. It tells us of the great deeds of Cúchulainn as he stands alone against Queen Maeve of Connaught and the army of Ireland, who seek to steal the powerful Brown Bull of Cooley.
Candlelit Tales presented their stripped-back telling of The Táin to great acclaim in GTF 2014. Now they return to this saga with a new vision, bringing the story to life with original songs from the Old Irish verses, haunting shadow puppetry Flight of Fancy, and dynamic choreography.

A beautiful re-telling of one of Ireland’s most iconic legends.
