About ECHO HUNT

A modern, northern Greek chorus. Three flesh, swim, sing and shout from the deep dark velvety black.

ECHO HUNT is one part of DOCNITE, an evening-length production of work by Oona Doherty, that was commissioned by and premiered at Echo Echo Festival of Dance and Movement 2015.

Audience comments

Very physical. Enjoyed Oona’s limitless and brutal physicality and the use of language. 

Humorous, original, visceral magic. 

Amazing and thought provoking – challenging norms of performance. Energy, commitment and beauty of movement and emotion.
