"Quite simply one of the best dance and music theater shows I've ever seen"

Marquis W Howell II, bass player/ band leader (LA, CA)


The discovery of a love of music and dance

Radio Hermitage is a one woman show with a live jazz quartet, that combines dance and theatre in a unique new setting. The culmination of 6 years research, the show intertwines a history of jazz dance with the personal story of a Russian girl escaping a tragic moment in her life through a radio station. It is here she discovers jazz and embodies it’s many faces. While travelling the milestones of Jazz from it’s Roots to Bebop, through Charleston, Blues and Swing, she reveals the timeless power, depth and raw energy of African American dance and music.

"To us, life with its rhythms and cycles is dance, and dance is life" A.M Opoku

Show is accompanied by a live quartet of the best Irish jazz musicians: Cormac McCarthy (piano), Ken Marshall (sax, clarinet), Davie Ryan (drums), David Duffy (musical director, bass).

Length of the show 1h 15min.
