Dance and theatre inspired by ‘The Cove’ in Limavady

An “exciting” new production which explores the landscape which surrounds us visits Limavady this October. Inspired by a stunning bay in County Donegal, The Cove is at the Roe Valley Arts & Cultural Centre / Ionad Ealaíon agus Cultúir Ghleann na Ró on Friday, 5 October, at 8pm.

“Created by Echo Echo Dance Theatre Company, the production combines contemporary dance and theatre to capture our experience of the environment - about how we feel scaling soaring crags with the sea below, feeling the rocks with our fingertips, smelling and tasting the air. The effort, the challenge, the pleasure and the fear and mortality we often face when encountering the physical landscape,” said a spokesperson.

The production combines the choreography by Echo Echo Artistic Director Steve Batts with stage design by Belfast based visual artist and climber Dan Shipsides, with a music score by Christopher Norby. Workshops at secondary schools are also taking place across the borough – contact Desima Connolly, Arts & Cultural Services Officer for details.

Tickets cost £5 with group discount available from the Arts Centre’s Box office on Tel: 028 7776 0650 or visit for more information.
