Little John Nee on the silver screen

Little John Nee has been our theatre artist (not quite!) in residence during the pandemic. The first of his projects presented as part of the residency is his film Drone Bone Jetty.

A collaboration with Laura Sheeran, Drone Bone Jetty, like their last collaboration Radio Rosario, is set in a not too distant dystopian future in the west of Ireland.

It will be screened at this year’s Earagail Arts Festival on Wed 21 July at Century Cinemas – tickets are very limited, advanced booking is essential.

About Bone Drone Jetty

Puck Tyrrell is waiting for a boat. He hasn’t gone to work today. He has probably lost his job anyway. Puck’s had a run of good luck lately; first the allotment, then the free ticket to Heebie Jeebies and the new job; the newest recruit at the Academy of Holodramatic Arts, where algorithms do all the heavy thinking; those algorithms just can’t get enough in the Unity quest to create “art without artists”; studying the freaks, creating the data.

Production Partners for Drone Bone Jetty are  Arts Council of Ireland, Siamsa Tire (Tralee), Town Hall Theatre (Galway), An Grianán Theatre (Letterkenny), Donegal Arts Office, Aras Eanna Inis Oirr.

Congratulations to John, Laura and the rest of the team for winning Best Indie Film for Drone Bone Jetty at the Silk Road Film Awards Cannes.

There will be more to come from Little John as the residency continues into the autumn. Watch out for future announcements.

Little John Nee’s residency at An Grianán is supported by the Arts Council and is a partnership between An Grianán, Town Hall Theatre Galway, Galway Co. Arts Office, Donegal Arts Service and Árus Éanna Arts Centre Inis Oírr Island, Galway.
