Eight Feet Tall

Traditional Irish Dance & Music

Featuring instrumentalists Dan Accardi (the Ivy Leaf) and Armand Aromin (the Ivy Leaf, the Vox Hunters) and dancers Rebecca McGowan and Jackie O’Riley (co-creators of From the Floor, 2022 Massachusetts Cultural Council Fellows in Choreography), Eight Feet Tall approaches steps and tunes with both intense respect for tradition and keen sensitivity to the shared rhythmic experience of music and dance. Instruments, shoes, voices, and whole bodies enter into conversation with one another to create complex sonic textures amid vibrant visual interplay.
