An echo is created, repeated and transformed over time in interplay with the space it occupies.
ECHOensemble creates evolving architecture of movement and sound. Together, dancers and musicians become resonant bodies, instruments of space, dissolving their mediums into one. Directed by Jonah Udall, the Brooklyn-based collective comes together around an awareness-based practice called SHIFT, influenced by Steve Reich’s "process music," Mary Overlie's Viewpoints method, and two years of organic, physical research. Conversing with space and time through repetition and natural evolution, they discover shared worlds where nine singular voices ring out and blend together as one. ECHOensemble’s evening-length debut “One” premieres at Dixon Place (Manhattan) in January, 2019.
