Erebidae Circus performing their first presentation of “Triple Goddess” as a part of Culture Night in Cavan, September 2021.

This show was an amalgamation of Irish Mythology storytelling, Live original fusion Irish music and fire performance depicting mythological characters based around “The Morrigan” and the forgotten strong women in Irish Mythological history. Written, directed and produced by Erebidae Circus (Polina Shapkina and Aoife Kavanagh) featuring live original music from Rú O’Sé, and a script adapted and performed by Aoife Kavanagh, all written specifically for this production.

In this production I am a fire performer who plays two characters; Eirú, a being of lightness and Nemain, a being of darkness. Photo take during the show while performing the part of Nemain, an Irish Goddess who personifies the frenzied havoc of war.

I use fire poi, palm torches and a fire dragon staff during this production
