Echo Room questions the relationship between movement, physiology and psychological structures.
Three simultaneous perceptions of a dance duet.
Three separate visual and musical spaces in one location (stage version or site specific version)
Two dancers equipped with physiological sensors: muscular tension, breathing, and heartbeat.
A space for the live dance.
A second space: the physiological states of the dancers are directly translated into sound and video light.
A third space: images of the dancers are perceived in another real-symbolic-past-future space/time dimension.
In the site specific version the audience is invited to circulate in three separate spaces, inside of a given location. In the stage version the audience can experience the three spaces simultaneously either in the house or around the dancers on the stage itself as images and sound are projected on screens suspended on stage and on the walls of the house.
