LifeLine is Europe's largest highwire spectacle performed over the River Corrib and Claddagh Basin in Galway City. Staged on 7 highwires and featuring a cast of 150 people of all ages and backgrounds, audiences will witness a stunning display of strength and resilience over one of Ireland’s most iconic waterways.


LifeLine uses wirewalking as a practice to improve wellbeing, and aspires to reinfuse hope into a landscape that carries great sadness and beauty. Featuring performances by professional highwire artists, a 42-person European Youth Ensemble, the premiere of the Creative Europe funded show 'BassAlto,' and highwire walks by community participants from across Ireland, LifeLine will remind us that we can all achieve the impossible.



With Musical Direction by Michael Chang and Costume Design by Ella Daly.
