Echo Echo Contact Improvisation Festival

Following the success of our previous festival in 2019, Echo Echo Dance Theatre Company is excited to host a third international Contact Improvisation Festival in our beautiful space situated in the heart of Derry/Londonderry.

We are interested in and appreciate the natural desire as humans to move and be moved, to celebrate the joy of simply dancing together or on your own. So we warmly invite you to come and join us in a week of dancing!

This year we decided just to have the two intensives alongside a weekend of jams!!

For the two intensives we have invited:

  • Lucia Walker - Based in South Africa
  • Benno Voorham - Based in Sweden

Throughout the existence of Echo Echo, we have worked on different occasions with Lucia and with Benno. Their approach to dance and movement has a very strong resonance with our own work.

The Festival will run from 23rd May until 31st May 2020.

Keep an eye and ear out for further updates on prices and programme etc

Local, national and international visitors are welcome! Contact us if you have a question about getting here or need an invitation:


Registration is now open for 2020! Get the early bird while you can - it's brilliant value!!
