I’ve just returned to Dublin from a weekend in Derry but that didn’t mean my time with Derry folk was over for the weekend just yet. I was asked to take some photos for the Echo Echo Dance Theatre Company from Derry who where on the final night of their latest production ‘Ripple Affect‘. They’ve been all over Ireland with this show but the last night of the tour had arrived and a good crowd turned up at the Civic Theatre in Tallaght to see what it was all about.
Well, it was about the ripple effect, surprisingly enough, of human interaction. The tag line used is ‘What do you do after you have been hugged, or hugged someone?’. The dancers where excellent, blending a mixture of well choreographed dance and improvision. At times funny, at other times moving. Oh, and some cracking music from Lorna, Karen and Joleen McLaughlin – otherwise known as The Henry Girls.
As mentioned, the tour is over now, but you may want to keep an eye on Echo Echo’s website for future shows. Good stuff.
