About this project
Our show, Journey to Ireland, has been selected to attend an international convention for artists and productions in Germany and we need your help to get there. This event is the perfect launching pad for our new show, Journey to Ireland, which premiered in Germany last March. It is our hope to bring our show on the road to further promote Irish culture, give Irish artists a platform to display their outstanding talents and of course for more audiences to enjoy the experience.
This is your chance to support us and help bring our work to more and more audiences around the world!
The 'Internationale Kultürboerse' will take place in Freiburg from the 25th - 28th of January. This annual convention selects artists, productions and shows to come together for three days to showcase to promoters, producers and experts in the event business across Europe.
JOURNEY TO IRELAND, brought to you by Paula Goulding and Shane McAvinchey, is an atmospheric and intimate show which takes visitors on an exciting journey through the Irish dance and music culture of the last centuries. The audience are transported to a 19th-century Irish home where a session is taking place then carried through time to a modern sophisticated Ireland. Full of soulful ballads, slow melodies, cheerful songs and dance tunes that will captivate audiences.
The show represents every aspect of our magical island steeped in rich tradition. From the gentle, heart-rending sounds of the harp to the rhythmic sounds of Bodhráns, Fiddles and rapid rhythms of the dancers. McAvinchey and Goulding, former ‘Riverdance’ members, bring their artistic talent and experience in show production to deliver a ground breaking new production that is set to amaze, move and strike an emotional chord with anyone who experiences the show.
Risks and challenges
In order to attend and perform our show at the IKF in Freiburg, we must raise enough funds to cover the costs for bringing our dancers, singers, musicians and other performers together for the showcase performance and also for the rehearsals beforehand. Other costs include air travel for the full company, accommodation, meals and other materials required for the exhibit stand.
