Attila Meets Supergirly by Cathedral


Greer, Robin, The News Letter (Belfast, Northern Ireland)


THE Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival's circus selection got under way on Tuesday night when the locally based Circus Spectacky presented the Return of the Waltzing McTilders, featuring the Scarlett Sisters at the Waterfront Studio.

This outing was essentially a community arts end-of-project showcase for a youth group from north Belfast, and a spirited tumblefest ensued which owed more to enthusiasm than professionalism.

TEACHERS, 8.00pm at Waterfront Studio: The ever popular play by John Godber gets a new lease of life by the Rainbow Factory Youth Theatre Company. The play tells the story of a group of drama students who, when their teacher announces he is leaving, arrange a very special send-off.

RAW OF THE CIRCUS: 8.00pm Belfast Circus School: Seven months work has gone into creating a hysterical night of laughter and high-flying circus.

SUPERGIRLY: 11.00pm The Kremlin, Donegall Street: One of the hottest tickets in the festival, Supergirly takes laugh-a-long tackiness to new heights. …
