Conceived as a performance art piece, / Echo deals with the conceptual meanings of love in all of its shapes and forms. A piece that incorporates movement, music, spectacle, and lyrical narrative to communicate to its audience, / Echo's main goal is to provide a unique and immersing experience for its audiences that will challenge their perceptions of what it really means to feel alone in a world in which it is impossible to escape human contact. Loss, social injustice, clinical anxiety, racism, romance & taboo are only some of the conversations /Echo brings to the live intimate stage. Meaning, understanding, and aesthetic will be put into experimentation as the audience embarks in a journey full of universal stories lived from midnight, until dawn.
Jesus Lopez, Director
/Echo simultaneously unfolds over three decades and one long night. Told in a series of vignettes, the show inspects the universal experiences of loneliness and human connection in intimate detail. Souls meet, fall in love, and betray one another in sporadic, reoccurring fashion over 37 years – suggesting a deeper connection between all humanity that has been abused, ruptured, and repaired. It dares to ask us what is love, what is pain, and what is time while challenging the social constructs of gender, race, and relationships. As performance poetry, the lyrical movement of the show ebbs and wanes like an erratic ocean concurrently beautiful, haunting, and dangerous.
Herman Gomez, Dramaturg
