San Diego Fringe Presents THE BAD ARM- CONFESSIONS OF A DODGY IRISH DANCER, 7/9-13

San Diego has a sizeable, vibrant Irish community, with popular Irish pubs and restaurants, shops, businesses, bands and dance classes. Most are successful. So it may come as a refreshing change to celebrate the hapless adventures of an Irish Dancing failure!

Irish Dance teacher, adjudicator, choreographer and actor, Maire Clerkin, brings her acclaimed comedy solo show, 'The Bad Arm -Confessions of a Dodgy Irish Dancer' to San Diego International Fringe Festival, July 9 - 13, 2014. Directed by Impro Theatre's Dan O'Connor, this Best of Hollywood Fest extravaganza has toured all over, including to Ireland to coincide with the World Championships in 2011! Maire has performed her show to enthusiastic audiences and reviewers from New York, Chicago, Dublin, and Vancouver, to Atlanta, Jacksonville, Santa Cruz, Sacramento, Minneapolis, Santa Monica - and now beautiful San Diego.

Among many great reviews, the show was selected as Critic's Pick by BACKSTAGE. Here is a brief description:
Raw Rhythms. Tall Tales. Arse-clenching comedy.

Máire Clerkin jumps in and out of hornpipe shoes in a provocative account of being English in Ireland, Irish in England and a pink-haired punk in a grey city. Amid bone-shaking bursts of rhythm and physical theatre, our ugly-duckling-never-quite-swan recounts her experiences like only a London-Irish, convent-educated girl can. An outrageous antidote to Riverdance.

"Glorious riffs of Irish dance... animated impersonations and snapshot transitions...a world Clerkin captures so meticulously - GO" Stephen Leigh Morris, LA Weekly

"One of the single best pieces of theatre I've ever seen.... packs a wallop, brings the house down". Linda Purl, California International Theatre Festival.

Suitable for everyone age 12 and up.

We hope you can come along!
