The Red Torc by Nicola Moran -A free performance in the Basement Gallery 10am – 3pm Tuesday 1st February

The Red Torc Performance is an environmental piece, by An Táin Arts Centre’s Circus Performer and Aerialist in Residence Nicola Moran, exploring themes of destruction – on both the natural world, and also its impact on us as people.

Nicola with a background in fine and applied art specializing in jewelry decided to excavate the mining industry and look at exploring concept development through the experimental conversations between body, form and material, initial drawings that adorn the body and then the body in turn informed.

In this performance Nicola wears a Torc of red ice walking up and down the Basement Gallery over the course of a day, her ice jewellery melted and dried in rivulets down her body and onto the tiled floor of what was the old gaol.

No booking is required for ‘The Red Torc’ just drop by the Basement Gallery between 10am and 3pm on Tuesday 1st of February to experience this performance.
