Kilkenny Arts Festival - Counting Sheep

Sunday, 13. Aug 2017, 20:00 h - Saturday, 19. Aug 2017

An award-winning hit at last year's Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Counting Sheep is a breathtaking ‘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 that 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.
