WITHOUT remount - Press Release
25 November 2013
Echo Echo Dance Theatre Company will re-open Without - the hauntingly beautiful seven-screen film installation by acclaimed artist and filmmaker Rosemary Lee which captures an amazing panoramic view of the city, this week. After the first highly successful presentation of ‘Without' in August, which attracted over 1,500 visitors, Echo Echo are delighted to offer the public another opportunity to see the breathtaking installation from 28th November - 12th December in their new studios in Magazine Street.
Without was filmed last April from seven different view points from St Columb's Cathedral tower and from the City Walls and captures local people moving and gliding throughout the city's historic landscape in various creative ways. Many local cyclists, skateboarders, rollerbladers, teadancers and primary school children took part in the films which have received such an amazing public response.
Eddie Nixon from ‘The Place', London's premiere centre for contemporary dance described Without as: One of the great artworks I have seen in my life."
Whilst a local audience member described the installation as: A sheer delight. So wonderful to view."
The project was the result of a year-long collaboration between Echo Echo Dance Theatre Company and Rosemary Lee for the City of Culture 2013. Rosemary Lee is one of the leading choreographers of recent times, and has made some beautiful and highly acclaimed large-scale works involving professional dancers and local communities.
Echo Echo Company Manager, Ailbe Beirne, said the company is delighted to remount Without: "In terms of artistic quality, feedback from audiences, and contributing to the lasting legacy, this is one of the most ambitious and most beautifully realised productions of 2013. We are happy it has attracted some high profile international touring invitations for next year."
The remount of this special installation is not to be missed and will be presented at Echo Echo Dance & Movement Studios, Waterloo House, City Walls, Magazine Street from 28th November - 12th December.
The project is supported by Culture Company 2013, Arts Council of Northern Ireland, and Arts Council England, and in association with Artsadmin and The Place.
