Point of Echoes

Commissioned by the Rural Touring Dance Initiative

 

The year is 1978, isolated from the mainland, Eric Valentine and Bernard Humphries have been stationed at Echo Point lighthouse, somewhere off the coast of England. The unlikely strangers have just begun to lay down foundations for this odd working relationship when the uncanny occurs.  

 

Renowned international choreographer Ben Wright and musician and writer Stuart Warwick collaborate to bring you bgroup’s most intimate and theatrical production to date.  

 

Point of Echoes is a haunting tale of love, death and monsters, blending the tones of a Wes Anderson movie with the eerie dread of The Twilight Zone.

 

“giddy, pensive, vulnerable, uncomfortable, sensual.....mysterious yet playfully alive to the moment” The Times 

Fundraising for Extended Tour

We've launched an Indiegogo campaign to raise funds for an extended tour of Point Of Echoes. 

 

This exciting new project is already booked for an extensive rural tour, starting in September 2017. However, Ben and the company would love to extend the show's reach to an additional set of small scale theatres in the UK.

 

Donations range from £10 to £6,000. There are brilliant prizes on offer from a Point Of Echoes stick of rock to a cliff-top meal with Choreographer Ben and Composer Stuart followed by an intimate gig. However big or small, your donation will contribute towards the creation and touring of this ambitious piece of dance theatre!

 

The campaign ends on 21st May, so get donating here! (link to http://bit.ly/2oRhEKb)
