Location One presents ECHO, a collaborative project created by
visual/media artist Andrew Duggan and dancers Jonathan Kelliher and
Joanne Barry of Siamsa Tíre, the National Folk Theatre of Ireland. For
one-night only traditional Irish dance will be transported from the
South West coast of Ireland to Location One's Gallery space in New York
City. Impromptu street performances and filming will take place in NYC
at undisclosed locations leading up to the event. The resulting
project will be presented at Location One.
The video installation will be continuous throughout the presentation, with
dance performances at 7pm and 8pm (approximately 10 minutes in length).
The event is free and open to the public.
Location One is located at 26 Greene Street (between Grand and Canal
Streets) in New York City. Subway: N, R, Q, W, 6, A, C, and E trains
to Canal Street. For more information: 212-334-3347 /

an urban context.
Andrew Duggan's media and installation work investigates the space
between tradition and contemporary space and time. [read more...]
