Overview

“★★★★★ Warm, funny, respectful and irreverent”
The Irish Times

Virtuoso traditional Irish fiddle player Tommie Potts’ (1912-1988) iconic 1972 album The Liffey Banks, the only recording of his music commercially released in his lifetime, is heralded for its melancholy and mischief. Many also consider its elusive rhythms unfit for dance.

Armed with an LP, tape recorder, portable speakers and sheets of flooring, celebrated dance artist Colin Dunne sets out to confront this controversial album.

Irish Arts Center and BAC are delighted to welcome back Colin Dunne following our first co-presentation in 2011 of the artist's Olivier Award-nominated Out of Time.
