Sub Rosa – Carlow Arts Festival June 8th, 9th

Sub Rosa is a brand new Irish street show by homegrown circus artists Ronan Brady and Aisling Ní Cheallaigh. Incorporating cyr wheel, dance and acrobatics, Sub Rosa promises to be unmissable display of Irish circus at its best. In a nostalgic and comedic look at these performers lives, Sub Rosa explores the battle between our internal and external selves, the difference between who we are and how we present ourselves.

Choreographed by Joli Vyann
Directed by Jenny Jennings
Musical Composition by Alma Kelliher

Supported by The Arts Council of Ireland, Dance Ireland and Shawbrook Dance.


Irish Circus takes to the theatre in Aisling Ní Cheallaigh and Ronan Brady’s brand new collaboration “How to Square a Circle”. Freshly returned from international tours with Fidget Feet Aerial Dance and THISISPOPBABY, our homegrown artists (Dublin and Roscommon) have come together to produce a new show which seeks to blend beauty and raw physicality. Accompanied by the music and soundscapes of Alma Kelliher, Aisling and Ronan explore the boundaries of the human body and mind in an evening of entertainment which aims to both awe and intrigue.
Supported by The Arts Council of Ireland, Dríaocht (Blanchardstown) and The Dean Crowe Theatre (Athlone)
