We’re delighted to announce that we’ve once again teamed up with ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ semi-finalists, Street Performance World Champions, and utterly ridiculous dance duo, the LORDS OF STRUT, to bring ABSOLUTE LEGENDS, the smash-hit fantasy adventure for all the family, on an Irish tour, this Autumn.
The duo have had a huge year touring ABSOLUTE LEGENDS in Australia and the UK, starring in our very own international theatrical juggernaut RIOT, and most recently they made headlines by teaming up with US comedy powerhouse National Lampoon to make a critically acclaimed show, ‘Champions of Dance’ which played at The Peacock Theatre as part of this year’s Dublin Fringe Festival. National Lampoon is an all-platform studio, built around one of the most iconic brands in comedy history and this was the first time they’ve signed a development deal with artists this side of the Atlantic.
They will also be hitting our screens on RTE Junior this October in a new kids TV series produced by Stopwatch called ‘Body Brothers’, where the brothers will find out all about different parts of the human body and make a dance about it. There’ll be lots of farts, science and dance!
ABOUT ABSOLUTE LEGENDS
All their lives, Sean and Seamus have wanted to be famous. To get there they need to make the perfect dance routine, and they need your help.
In this dance fantasy adventure two brothers rock out some banging moves, run into trouble, have a few tantrums, cause a teensy bit of mayhem and find out if fame is really what they’re looking for after all.
