Echo Echo Dance Theatre Company presents

The Cove


Lime Tree Theatre | Sat, April 1st | 8pm | €16/€14

*Limited Capacity


The Cove is a performance about the natural world, and the place of people in it. It reflects on the experience of the beauty of the wild Irish coast and its embodiment in movement.

The Cove is created around and with a large scale installation made from heavy, strong, shiny blocks. They reflect the light, like the surface of the sea or the shiny rocks. Sometimes they seem steely and sometimes warm. They are manipulated, with effort, and pleasure, into different configurations which provide the dancers with a changing environment with different opportunities and challenges.

Through this environment a woman travels. She climbs, sits, contemplates and is enfolded by the spirit of the place.

The Cove is the result of a creative collaboration between Echo Echo Artistic Director Steve Batts, internationally acclaimed artist Dan Shipsides and musician Christopher Norby.

“… told with fable-like simplicity, the dance is a multi-layered meditation on overcoming the constant force of gravity and the fear of falling in order to achieve the joyous freedom of the peak” Michael Seaver, Irish Theatre Magazine
