Echo Echo Festival of Dance and Movement - Open Call Programme
Echo Echo Dance Theatre Company hosts an annual Festival of Dance and Movement each year in November since 2013.
As part of the Festival we invite proposals from artists to submit work that might be shown as part of the Festival Short Works mixed performance programme.
In each previous year we have had a wonderful mix of work in our open call evenings. This has ranged from solos to sextets, from minimalist to highly theatrical, from improvisation scores to highly detailed set work, and from pieces of less than 5 minutes to pieces that have stretched our 15 minute limit a little. We are always open to the idea that artists whose work has been shown in the open call may be invited back to Echo Echo for longer residencies and/or to perform a full programme at a later festival.
