Instructions for “Irish Dance for Mud or Water”


Basic Performance:

Find a willing Irish Dance troupe.

Have the Irish Dance troupe perform a traditional Irish Dance
hip-deep in a mud pit or a shallow body of water.


Alternative choreography:

Have the dancers sink deeper and deeper
into the mud or water during their performance
until they are no longer visible.

After several minutes, have a Chinook helicopter
appear in the sky from behind nearby mountains
and land near the performance space.

Have the members of the Irish Dance troupe
exit the helicopter with a triumphant flourish.
