4 stars

"Giddy, pensive, vulnerable, uncomfortable, sensual... mysterious yet playfully alive to the moment."

Point of Echoes

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.

“When a wrecked boat casts a stranger on their shore, rescue and recovery merge with salty stories of sea monsters rising from the deep…its subtle mix of quietness and turbulence tug at the imagination like a tide.” – The Guardian

“The whole audience was mesmerised throughout…[an] amazing performance” – Claire Marshall, Carn to Cove

“Funny, thoughtful and disturbing in equal measure” – Audience Member

“I loved the tension and physicality in the movement” – Audience Member

Commissioned by the Rural Touring Dance Initiative, Warwick Arts Centre and Dance East.
