ECHOensemble at the Egg: Showing on 9/2

ECHOensemble will be in residence at the Dragon’s Egg at the end of August, and will have a showing of work in progress on Labour Day, September 2, at 5 pm.  Do come!


ECHOensemble creates evolving architecture of movement and sound. Together, dancers and musicians become resonant bodies, instruments of space, dissolving their mediums into one. Directed by Jonah Udall, the Brooklyn-based collective comes together around an awareness-based practice called SHIFT, influenced by Steve Reich’s “process music,” Mary Overlie’s Viewpoints method, and two years of organic, physical research. Conversing with space and time through repetition and natural evolution, they discover shared worlds where nine singular voices ring out and blend together as one. ECHOensemble’s evening-length debut “One” premiered at Dixon Place (New York, NY) in January, 2019.

For our first-ever company residency at the Egg, we will be diving deep with our practice SHIFT, researching new directions for our work while growing closer as an ensemble. We will be focusing in on where movement becomes sound and sound becomes movement, finding the places where our media break apart into something new. This gift of space and time will allow us to work in many more ways than a normal rehearsal schedule affords us. On Monday evening September 2nd at 5pm, we will present the fruits of what we’ve been working on in a unique performance to honor the space.
