Echo Echo Festival of Dance and Movement returns for a fifth edition from 7th to 18th November 2017 with an outstanding programme of dance, movement and physical theatre performances in Derry-Londonderry, Northern Ireland.

Welcome to the fifth edition of the Echo Echo Festival of Dance and Movement. It really feels like our festival has now become an established event and that we have created a festival with an identity which suits Derry in its concern with warmth, integrity, humanity, relationships and depth. We continue this year with our approach of programming a mix of work by artists with a long term relationship with Echo Echo Dance Theatre Company and artists new to us and to our region. We continue to favour work which is rooted in the idea that it is people who dance... not just bodies. Please do come along to move and be moved. Steve Batts, Echo Echo Artistic Director
