Festival Workshop Tour

Echo Echo Dance Theatre Company is interested in finding ways to develop engagement with artists in dance, movement and related disciplines, from all parts of Ireland. With this in mind we are offering a series of workshops outside our home base in Derry.

Experienced dancers and artists in other fields, along with experienced non-professionals, are invited to join a free workshop with Steve Batts, Artistic Director Echo Echo Dance Theatre Company; and Ayesha Mailey, Echo Echo Associate Artistic Director.

There will be a practical movement session and a short presentation on the work of Echo Echo and the concept of Poetic Movement. The workshop will include an outline of ways to engage with and collaborate with Echo Echo including an introduction to their Artist-in-Residence programme, an explanation of opportunities for proposing work for the annual Echo Echo Festival, and an outline of other possibilities for developing collaboration, performances, research and workshops at Echo Echo Studios in Derry.

To book a place please contact Echo Echo at contact details below or simply come along on the day.

Echo Echo Festival Bursaries

Workshop participants will have the opportunity to apply for one of a number of bursaries Echo Echo is offering to attend Echo Echo Festival of Dance and Movement which takes place in Derry from 7th – 18th November 2017. The simple application process will be described at this workshop and decisions will be communicated by 27th October.

The amount of the bursary is up to €200 towards travel and accommodation expenses.

The bursary will include free entrance to the performance programme and class programme from 16th-18th November including events by Lavadans (Sweden) and Junebug (Switzerland), attendance at the Festival Symposium on Saturday 18th November, and attendance at the end-of-festival party with soul-funk band Velvet Alibi. Full details of the 2017 Festival programme are available on this website from 22nd September.

If successful applicants for a bursary wish to attend the Festival for longer we may be able to help with finding cheap accommodation. There are various offers to reduce the cost of additional festival tickets including reduced rate festival passes and volunteering.
