Thank you for checking out our Fund it campaign - we hope you can help to make ECHO HUNT happen!
Echo Echo Festival of Dance and Movement will present the premiere of Oona Doherty’s ECHO HUNT as part of DOCNITE, a full evening of her work on 5th and 6th November 2015 (that will include other works LADY MAGMA, HOPE HUNT and NOW SHAKE OUT).
ECHO HUNT is a collaboration between Choreographer Oona Doherty; Film Artist Michael Barwise; and Dance/Movement Artists Janie Doherty, Kelly Quigley and Zoe Ramsey of Echo Echo Ensemble.
A modern northern Greek Chorus. Inspired by the works of Francis Bacon's Triptych and Samuel Beckett's Not I and Man Ray.
The audience is transported in to the dark of noise. Of the deep velvety black of the subconscious, where the nervous system shouts out.
To bring ECHO HUNT to life as part of DOCNITE we need some additional funding to cover modest Performers and Collaborators Fees.
With your help we can bring this beautiful beast from the depths of the imagination into reality!

About Echo Echo Dance Theatre Company
Echo Echo Dance Theatre Company is recognised as one the leading dance companies in Ireland and established since 1991. The company regularly produces and tours, nationally and internationally, with original new performance work for an ensemble of locally-based dance and movement artists.
The company curates Echo Echo Festival of Dance and Movement, the only annual international dance festival in Northern Ireland. The third edition of the Festival is confirmed to take place in November 2015. Past Festivals have included dance and movement work from Ireland, UK, Greece, Austria, Germany, Canada, Moldova, Italy, USA and Russia.
An important element of Echo Echo Festival is the local artist commissioning strand that gives a platform for locally based dance artists to create and perform new work. We invite Oona based on the quality of her work with Echo Echo before, the potential of this collaboration for Festival 2015 and genuine potential for international touring.
Any contribution, no matter how large or small, would be greatly appreciated to make this project happen. Thanks for your support!
