ITMA Drawing From the Well: Edwina Guckian

Wednesday, 18 November 2020, 8.00pm

November’s guest artist, Leitrim dancer Edwina Guckian, will create a new dance inspired by a most interesting piece of research by scholar Seán Donnelly relating to the amazing, yet tragic, long-distance dancing feat undertaken by Jack Lattin of Morristown, Co. Kildare during the early 18th century. In some historical accounts it is reputed that Lattin, having won a wager for a dancing challenge, died from exhaustion days after completing the challenge.

Join us on Wednesday 18 November 2020 8 pm (Irish time) as we launch a new video & blog, journeying with Edwina & Cathal Ó Curráin in the dance steps of the infamous 18th c. Kildare man.
