ABOUT COUNTING SHEEP

A hit at the 2016 Edinburgh Festivals, this breathtaking show takes the audience into the heart of the Ukrainian Revolution on Kiev's Maidan Square

The Revolution is coming...

An award-winning hit at last year's Edinburgh Festivals, Counting Sheep is a breathtaking ‘guerrilla folk opera'.  Created by musicians Mark and Marichka Marczyk with Balkan-klezmer-punk band the Lemon Bucket Orkestra, this groundbreaking show offers a personal retelling of the Maidan revolution, the popular uprising that succeeded in toppling the Ukrainian government in 2014.  

An explosive mix of theatre, dance, music and song which pitches audiences head first into the chaos of those days, Counting Sheep invites you to experience the exhilaration, passion and heartbreak of revolution up close in 360 degrees.  Don't miss this moving, joyous show in its only Irish performances. 

Awards: Scotsman Fringe First, Amnesty International Freedom of Expression (Highly Commended), The Summerhall Top Prize, Dark Chat Special Award, Total Theatre (shortlist), Carol Tambor Best of Fringe (shortlist), TVBomb Groundbreaker (shortlist)

Presented by the Lemon Bucket Orkestra, Hot Feat Canada Ltd and Selfconscious Productions
