Event description
An extravaganza of Irish culture - from myth to Mannion - told through Storytelling, Music, Burlesque, Comedy, Drag and Dance

About this Event

Cork will be the premier stage for a thrilling new burlesque and cabaret extravaganza that will tour all over Ireland (and maybe beyond!)

The very first edition of Seomraí Bearú: Discovering Ireland will take over the Bodega on Sunday, October 20, turning the city’s most beautiful bar into a spectacular, immersive production with an exclusive line up of 100% homegrown Irish talent. 32 performances from 21 acts will each showcase a unique part of Irish culture through storytelling, burlesque, comedy, drag, music and dance. Expect references from everything from ancient mythology to Theresa Mannion.

In celebration of all things Irish (and Corkonian!), guests will be treated to a free Barry’s Tea and Jameson cocktail upon arrival. Premium ticket holders (limited to 100) will also get early access to the venue, complete with an intimate pre-show highlighting local talent, a chance to meet and greet the performers and a delectable plate of local food fresh from the English Market.

Seomraí Bearú is the brainchild of native Corkonian Brian Bearú, who has been taking the Irish burlesque scene by storm since beginning to perform in 2017. He is the first-ever male performer from the Irish Burlesque Academy, has performed all over the island of Ireland and was the first runner up for the inaugural Mr Boylesque Ireland earlier this year.

Discovering Ireland is the first production for the self-proclaimed High King of Ireland, but it certainly won’t be the last. This edition will feature such diverse performers as the reigning Miss Burlesque Ireland Bella Curve, award-winning fusion bellydancer Stacey McPartlin, trad band Torcán and storytelling troupe Candlelit Tales, co-founded by Cork siblings Sorcha and Aron Hegarty.

As well as throwing an unforgettable night for Irish audiences, Seomraí Bearú hopes to grow and connect the artistic community in Ireland and create a reliable source of income for performers. Seomraí Bearú will work with local businesses to provide a space for artists to conduct classes, markets and collaborations during the performance weekend and promote upcoming local shows.

The full performer's list will be available on 25/09/2019, with surprise guests are also due to be announced.

Workshops will be announced at a later date!
