Birthday comes from the woods of darkest Europe, inspired by Little Red Riding Hood. The Cirque Tsuki is celebrating the birthday of Madame Mist, the mischievous storyteller's assistant. As the clock strikes midnight, she opens her present and the shadows come pouring out, bringing Madame Mist and the audience on a journey of joyful discovery.|
The second part of the trilogy, Feast comes from the deserts of mythical Arabia, inspired by 1001 Arabian Nights. The Cirque Tsuki is relaxing in the heat of summer, feasting, dancing and mixing love potions. Among this heady mix, Scheherazade is entrapped by the master magician and must keep telling stories to save her life: bizarre tales of djinns, princes, deserts and magic.
We then move onto the third ring: the dark and haunting Parade, which comes from the furthest reaches of Japan. The Cirque Tsuki is playing the Night Parade, where 100 candles are lit and 100 ghost stories are told. The story goes that on the lighting of the last candle all the ghosts will appear. This final tale is of Izanagi and his strange journey into the underworld in search of his lost love.
Although Birthday appeals to all ages, Feast and Parade are not suitable for children under the age of 12, owing to the romantic content of Feast and the psychologically unsettling content of Parade.
Founded in February 2013, ImmerCity sets out to create theatrical experiences that submerge the audience in a physical and psychological landscape. Our shows are not designed to be invasive; we are simply interested in exploring the nature of observation, physical presence and spatial narratives. Since its inception, ImmerCity has had huge success with sell-out performances at Babel Studios and a tour to the INtransit Festival of Art and the Edinburgh Festival. The company has also performed an interactive children's version of Little Red Riding Hood at the Gaiety Theatre in Dublin and The Grand Theatre in Swansea.
