The Cove is a performance about the natural world, and the place of people in it.
A reflection on the experience of the beauty of the wild Irish coast and its embodiment in movement.
Through a changing environment of large reflective blocks 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 in 2012 between Echo Echo Artistic Director Steve Batts, internationally acclaimed artist Dan Shipsides and musician Christopher Norby. The production has been recognised as a highlight of stage and screen design 2007 – 2014 by the Irish Theatre Institute.
“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”
