Des-Echoes

How do we know the “other” within? In this physically dynamic piece, two inextricably intertwined bodies navigate form and variation in their shared skin.

Des-Echoes is an exploration of our relation to the parts that we hide, disassociate from, or ignore. Two bodies are torn apart, conjoined, dismembered, and gathered again in a dance of generative friction.

[Des-Echoes] is a complication of the Spanish, “desechos”, meaning “rubbish”, “waste”, “outcast”.

Des-Echoes is part of a double bill with Fadeout.

Part of the SummerWorks Presentations programming – offering you a snapshot of contemporary performance in 2019. A vital collection of new theatre, dance, music, and live art works from across the country.
