Counting Sheep @ Kilkenny Arts Festival

Sunday, 13 August 2017, 8.00pm

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.
