TitanicDance is the Irish musical dance sensation that tells the story of the world’s most famous ship from its beginning in the Belfast shipyard to its tragic end in the Atlantic Ocean. Produced by Millennium Forum Productions by arrangement with KSR Productions, it first took audiences in Ireland by storm when it opened at the Odyssey Arena, Belfast in 2014 to standing ovations before enjoying a sell-out run at the Millennium Forum in Derry, one of Ireland’s leading arts venues.

In August 2016, TitanicDance showcased at the China International Folk Arts Festival in Qinghai, where it was seen by a live audience of over one billion people. In November 2016, TitanicDance made its inaugural visit to the US where it performed at the Branson Events Center in Missouri. It returned to China for sell-out runs in 2017 following a hugely successful Irish/UK tour.

A cast of 30 world class Irish dancers and live musicians set the scene for a breath-taking romantic performance. This is not just an Irish dance show; it’s an emotional journey of hope, aspiration, love, heartbreak and sadness that will mesmerise audiences everywhere.

TitanicDance performs at Belfast Waterfront from 9 to 19 August. Tickets are now available from the Box Office. Telephone 90 334455 or visit www.waterfront.co.uk
