Echoes From The Earth

Following a call from deep below the earth, two lost travellers embark on a journey through the sights and sounds of nature...

Echoes From The Earth invites audiences along for an accessible promenade dance work that weaves through natural spaces. Take a journey through nature following one of the two adventurers, beginning apart, but finding one another as they chase a mysterious echo.

Echoes From The Earth is created by choreographer Chris Pavia, a senior artist with Stopgap Dance Company who are driven by a diverse creative team of disabled and non-disabled dancers. The work is inspired by Chris’ experiences of the woodlands where he grew up in the South Downs National Parks.

Image Description: Dancers Abbie Thompson and Jonathan Mewett mirror one another in their movement, as if blown backwards by a gust of air they open both arms up and lean back as they stare out to the sky. Both wear costumes consisting of loose canvas trench jackets in mottled blue ,green and brown colours, along with light khaki t-shirts and trouser. They dance outside in a grassy clearing, large bushes behind them.
