Echo Echo Festival Presents 2021 – 22 to 27 Feb

Echo Echo Festival Presents a series of online artist talks, Livestreamed performances and other events.

We had planned the 8th edition of the Echo Echo Festival around a series of new works by artists based on the island of Ireland. We commissioned and programmed work that was as “covid adaptable” as possible but January 2021 brought the understanding that we would have to make major adjustments to our plans to deal with the strict restrictions on gatherings and travel.

We decided that the best idea was to build on what we have learned over the “lock-down” year and create a series of live online events under the heading “Echo Echo Festival Presents”.

The programme includes online talks with all the artists who would have shown their work, giving a chance to find out more about them and to whet the appetite for when they are able to come to Derry. There are short, livestreamed, solo dance performances by artists of the Echo Echo Ensemble. There is an online photographic retrospective of the past seven festivals. There are also classes and an opportunity to meet and question the whole Echo Echo team.

We would love for you to join us!

Dates: 22nd to 27th February 2021
