Galway audiences are in for a treat next month when former Riverdance star Breandán de Gallaí takes his his new show “Walls Talk” to the Town Hall Theatre on March 15.

Breandán’s role as a principal dancer with Riverdance spanned more than seven years, touring the globe with numerous prestigious performances including dancing for King Hussein of Jordan, the Emperor of Japan and Princess Diana.

Inspired by the phrase ‘if these walls could talk’, “Walls Talk” features de Gallaí’s mesmerising solo dance routines set against songs from the golden era of jazz and blues, performed live on stage by jazz singer Gina Boreham.

Speaking ahead of the tour, de Gallaí is encouraging audiences to come and be inspired.

“We’re hugely excited to be presenting this work in Galway, particularly at a time when Ireland is emerging from Covid-19 restrictions and the power of live performance has been largely absent from our lives for over two years,” he said.

“The show explores the notion of memory recorded in the material world around us. The narrative is told through the movement of the body and audiences will be wowed by Gina’s Live renditions of the jazz and blues classics.

“We hope to inspire audiences and challenge preconceptions of what dance can be”.

Walls Talk is produced by Ériu Dance Company and will be performed at; Dunamaise, Portlaoise (4th March), Everyman, Cork (March 9-10th), An Grianán, Letterkenny (12th March), Town Hall Theatre, Galway (15th March), Glór, Ennis (16th March), Siamsa Tíre, Tralee (March 18th), Lime Tree Theatre, Limerick (March 19th), Pavilion Theatre, Dublin (March 23rd) and Backstage Theatre, Longford (March 25th).
