A journey to ‘see’ music with brand new eyes and to ‘listen’ to dance with brand new ears.

 

"... an electrifying performance of exhilarating dance and percussion that enchants children and adults..."
Galway Independent, Ireland

 

Awe inspiring, jaw droppingly energetic, done with meticulous precision and very funny. Utterly fantastic.
The Week, Ireland

 

ECHOA takes the public as soon as the first beats in a musical and choreographic whirl in an extraordinary way that seduces right away. The whole show is a music and dancing breath-holding spin in which one’s no longer tries to guess where the instruments are, where are the dancers and musicians, as long as the show is stunning.”
Sud Ouest, France

 

Programme

ECHOA aims at sharpening the musicality of dancing as well as underlining music’s choreography. A show composed of percussion and dance and it will be a journey to 'see' music with brand new eyes and to 'listen' to dance with brand new ears.  Four artists on stage, not in their usual way to express themselves, but with the will to share as far as they can their common points and explore their own outbounds. In this quest for their own appropriation, music and dancing evolve altogether, each of them having the will to get challenged and finding their own poetic transposition. For each of artist on stage, instead of trying to merge, the purpose is to acquire the common spirit, to let their own imagination being provoked, and to find back, on the way and in the drive, the steps of motion, transferring and sharing. Seven short scenes reveal this unfamiliar journey, sometimes sweet as a whisper, sometimes strong as a carnival, never devoured from ardour or fantasy.

Running time of the programme is about 70 minutes without intermission

 

Age limit

\\\'ECHOA\\\' by Arcosm Company (France) Trailer

Company

Arcosm Company was created in 2001 and is currently co-directed by Thomas Guerry, a dancer and choreographer and Camille Rocailleux, a percussionist, pianist player and composer. The Company’s main objective is to build bridges between different artistic disciplines and languages; music, dance and singing are the root of this artistic approach. The main elements of the human voice (rhythm, melody, timbre and tone) are closely linked to the musical world, and give vividness and theatricality to the characters. The artists are required not only to use their personal skills and competences, but also to explore less familiar areas of artistic expression. When combined with highly mastered techniques, these new ways of expression create the sensitive and emotional breaks the company is looking for in order to achieve its artistic aims.
