Bend a bow back between bodies and sounds to overcome the classical cohabitation of dancers and musicians.
Nevertheless without switching upside down their rules, they are going to dig in their moves, to acquire each other’s rythms to obtain an unseen sense emerging from it. In this will of a common and subtil space, the stage features two percussions structures, with and around which the show is built.
HOW DOES A PERCUSSIONIST DANCE?
WHAT IS THE SOUND OF A DANCER?
ECHOA aims to sharpen the musicality of dancing as well as to underline the music’s choreography. The show is composed of unexpected music, in order to see dancing with new ears. Four artists get on stage, not in their usual way to express themselves, but with the will to share as far as they can their common points, exploring their own outbounds. In this quest for their own appropriation, music and dancing evolve together, each of them having the will to get challenged and to find their own poetic transposition. For each 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, the steps of motion, transfering and sharing.
