|Title of work||
Continuing Yi’s interrogation of pure movement works, Echo explores pulse and impulse, action and reaction, activity and stillness. Bodies are set to connect and collide, a subtle transference of energy where at times figures move in tandem, at other points spaced in deliberate opposition. From duets to ensemble moments, Echo seeks to ebb and flow as each individual casts themselves in and through the shadows. For Echo, Yi has devised a sound score that is activated as a reflection of the dancers’ action on stage. In many ways Echo replicates the wider creative process of this collaboration between Dancenorth and Tasdance, where initial movements in Townsville later resonated in Launceston prior to settling together again as a unified work.
