LORDS OF STRUT: ABSOLUTE LEGENDS
A Lords of Strut and THISISPOPBABY co-production
Fusing their signature combination of dizzying acrobatics, riotous comedy and big heart, Street Performance World Champions, unlikely heroes of smash hit RIOT and Britain’s Got Talent favourites, as well as RTE JNR show The Body Brothers, Lords of Strut deliver their most ridiculous and sublime family show to date. Rip-roaringly funny, fantastically bizarre, they are Absolute Legends!
All their lives, Sean and Seamus have wanted to be famous. To get there they need to make the perfect dance routine; they need your help. In this dance fantasy adventure, the brothers rock out banging moves, run into trouble, have a few tantrums, cause a bit of mayhem and find out if fame is really what they’re looking for after all.
LORDS OF STRUT: ABSOLUTE LEGENDS is a family show jointly created by Lords of Strut and THISISPOPBABY which premiered to sold out audiences as part of Dublin Fringe Festival 2017. Lords of Strut’s signature combination of circus, dance and comedy with the striking visuals and spectacle style now synonymous with THISISPOPBABY, LORDS OF STRUT: ABSOLUTE LEGENDS has received an overwhelmingly positive response from audiences of all ages and has enjoyed great critical acclaim.

Street Performance World Champions, Britain’s Got Talent Semi Finalists, unlikely heroes of smash hit RIOT and Cork’s favourite spandex wearing lads, Lords of Strut are on the mission to change the world with dance! Laughs come fast and hard as the boys leap around in less clothing than a naturalist at a bongo party, and generally unleash a full dose of madness.
Their latest shows – including Release the Freaks, and Absolute Legends – see dynamic brothers Famous Seamus and Sean-tastic smashing out the freakiest, funniest and sexiest routines that these high fashion dancing legends can muster. Resistance is futile.
