Echo Echo crowdfunding for new dance piece
Echo Echo ensemble dancer Kelly Quigley has been commissioned by Echo Echo Festival of Dance and Movement to create and present a new work at the fourth edition of the international festival in November 2016 in Derry.
This evening of short works, entitled FRACTALS, will consist of three diverse dance and movement theatre pieces but to develop the piece she is crowdfunding for modest Artist Fees for Ensemble Artists to co-devise and perform FRACTALS over four weeks in October/November 2016. Echo Echo will provide four weeks of free space and technical support with lighting and sound; and support with promotion, advertising and documentation. .
She explained, “I would really appreciate your help with making this show. It is so difficult for individual artists to find funding, especially funding to make new work. Crowdfunding has really given artists like myself the chance to be able to do that with quality and to a professional standard. Any contribution no matter how large or small would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!”
Kelly Quigley is a First Class BA Dance graduate of Ulster University. She joined Echo Echo Ensemble in 2009 and has been involved as performer, director, co-deviser and writer in a very wide range of productions and tours.
FRACTALS will be performed by Echo Echo Ensemble Artists: Ayesha Mailey, Tonya Sheina, Zoe Ramsey, Janie Doherty and Kelly Quigley. If you want to support the work you can donate here: http://fundit.ie/project/fractals-an-evening-of-short-works
