Echo Echo Dance Theatre Company is interested in finding ways to develop engagement with artists in dance, movement and related disciplines, from all parts of Ireland. With this in mind we are offering a series of workshops outside our home base in Derry.

Experienced dancers and artists in other fields, along with experienced non-professionals, are invited to join a free workshop with Steve Batts, Artistic Director, Echo Echo Dance Theatre Company.

There will be a practical movement session and a short presentation on the work of Echo Echo and the concept of Poetic Movement. The workshop will include an outline of ways to engage with and collaborate with Echo Echo including an introduction to their Artist-in-Residence programme, an explanation of opportunities for proposing work for the annual Echo Echo Festival, and an outline of other possibilities for developing collaboration, performances, research and workshops at Echo Echo Studios in Derry.

Workshop participants may apply for one of a number of bursaries Echo Echo is offering to participate in the sixth edition of Echo Echo Festival of Dance and Movement which takes place in Derry from 6th – 17th November 2018. Artist bursaries are open to artists working in any discipline with an interest in dance and movement. The bursary types available and the simple application process will be described at this workshop. Decisions on bursary applications will be communicated by Wednesday 26th September.

“I loved the wholesome and caring feeling of the whole festival. I appreciated the inclusivity; it is actually a quite rare thing. I also loved the fact we got to work and learn with artists whose performances we saw. It made both the performances and the classes more meaningful and resourceful.” Festival Bursary recipient
