Nine Nights was one of seven projects supported through Belfast City Council & the Arts Council of Northern Ireland’s Creative & Cultural Belfast programme.
Produced in partnership with renowned outdoor arts company Walk the Plank, Nine Nights was the largest outdoor theatre event ever to be staged in Belfast City Centre on the eve of the 24th October 2015. Hundreds of cross community participants took to the streets to re-tell centuries old Indian folklore in a thrilling contemporary Belfast celebration. Audiences were immersed in exhilarating music, dance, live theatrical narration, fiery pyrotechnics, light projections and sumptuous special effects.
“I think this sort of event is great for Belfast. This celebration of diversity which is open to all is essential in moving to a united community and making Belfast into a truly shared space for all”
An epic outdoor theatre experience inspired by Hindu legend of Goddess Durga
