Disappearing Islands

Disappearing Islands – A unique theatrical adventure on a tidal pool on the edge of the island.

The Performance Corporation – Ireland’s award winning, site specific specialists celebrate their 20 year anniversary by embarking on a unique theatrical adventure on a tidal pool on the edge of the island.

Inspired by north Mayos stunning landscape and its deep connection with sea, this new theatrical show will be performed in the stunning surrounds of the Belmullet Tidal Pool that overlooks the beautiful vista of Blacksod Bay in County Mayo from 16 – 19 September 2022. Contemporary dancers, a mezzo-soprano, acapella male vocalists and a world-class accordionist create a show filled with heart, hope and humour.

Disappearing Islands is an immersive experience in every sense. The audience is invited to take a communal dip in the tidal pool for the show’s finale – a moment that reflects the sea’s ability to bring people together.

Composed by Ellen Cranitch, Written by Tom Swift, Directed by Jo Mangan
