ODE TO LICKEEN LAKE PERFORMANCE
LINKING WATER AND TIME THROUGH PARTICIPATORY PERFORMANCE
Part of National Heritage Week August 2021
Reanimating stories from the bottom of the lake ... brings our unique creative approach to water heritage through conversation, music, poetry and dance highlighting the cultural, ecological and mythological significance of Lickeen Lake.
Ode to Lickeen Lake is a lamentation for the Arctic char and a speculation of the thermocline and micro-changes in our local water environment.
Presented by Creevagh Art and Archaeology Collective; Maria Kerin and Rachel Sweeney (curators),with Danny Burke and Déirdre Carr.
Inviting diverse communities to come together, Ode to Lickeen Lake responds to the urgency of our present times through a shared platform for conversations about the future with reference to the past.
