Get ready to embark on an emotional journey of hope, aspiration, love, heartbreak and sadness with “Titanic Dance,” a dance interpretation of the hit historical drama “Titanic,” taking center stage at Shenzhen Poly Theater.
Featuring 28 hugely talented Irish performers, the show tells the story of the world’s most famous voyage from its beginning in the Belfast shipyard to its tragic end in the Atlantic Ocean at the beginning of last century. The romantic storyline will follow the essence of James Cameron’s film “Titanic.”
A cast of world-class Irish dancers and musicians set the scene for a breathtakingly romantic performance that’s led by and choreographed by principal dancer and creative director, Raymond Sweeney, who brings a wealth of experience to “Titanic Dance,” having performed with Michael Flatley’s ground-breaking hit, “Lord of the Dance,” for over 15 years.
“Live Irish music, song and dance and a storyline that will have you on the edge of your seat and possibly in tears,” said Sweeney. “However, the theater show features a different ending. We’re telling our story in an easy-to-follow manner, differentiating classes through light, color, costumes and music.”
Joining him on stage and assisting with choreography is former world champion James Keegan and Louise Hayden, who have both danced principal roles in some of the world’s most famous dance shows.
Produced by Millennium Forum Productions, “Titanic Dance” took audiences in Ireland by storm when it opened at the Odyssey Arena in Belfast in 2014. The show received standing ovations in Belfast. According to its creators, “This is not just an Irish dance show; it’s an emotional journey that will mesmerize audiences everywhere.”
