“It’s hard to conceive of anyone - of any age - not loving Echoa. French company Arcosm has so much talent in its midst that we’re almost bowled over by it. [...] Rarely is contemporary dance so accessible and fun, eliciting peels of giggling laughter from young mouths alongside adult guffaws.” - The Scotsman
How does a percussionist dance? What is the sound of a dancer? An international success in over 25 countries with more than 930 performances, Echoa is a wonderfully entertaining and accessible music and movement experience for the whole family.
Two percussionists and two dancers meet onstage. Will they be able to understand each other? Their friendly competition and jubilant play make delightful use of both expected and unexpected instruments, while dance emerges in moments of comedy, non-verbal conversation and tenderness. Echoa will make you tap your feet, hold your breath and then laugh along as you see dancing with new ears.
Performing for the first time in Singapore, award-winning French dance company Arcosm specialises in theatrical experiences for young audiences. This performance is the perfect programme for the entire family, appealing to children as young as seven to their grandparents.
About the artists
Founded in 2001 by Thomas Guerry and Camille Rocailleux, Arcosm has been solely directed by Thomas Guerry since 2016. Created with the mission of reinventing the theatre experience for young audiences, Arcosm brings together multi-talented performers trained in music, dance, physical theatre, mime, and singing. The company’s creations are a potent combination of the surprising and unexpected. Burlesque humour is tempered with moments of reflection on the human condition. Dreamlike theatre meets danced reverie in a compelling universe that will enchant audiences both young and old.
