Point of Echoes-London Premiere-The Place, 20-22 September 2018

Choreographer Ben Wright’s intimate tale of lighthouse keepers designed especially for village halls tours town and country this Autumn

Choreographed and directed by Ben Wright | Music and text by Stuart Warwick

National Tour 11 Sept – 28 Sept | London premiere: The Place 20 – 22 Sept

Created as a collaboration between choreographer Ben Wright and musician/writer Stuart Warwick, Point of Echoes is a haunting tale of love, death and monsters, set on a lighthouse somewhere off the coast of England. It’s the first commission from the Rural Touring Dance Initiative (RTDI), a project designed to boost the amount of contemporary dance on offer in rural communities; specially designed to be performed in village halls, it toured extensively to rural areas all over the UK throughout Spring 2018. Autumn will see the dance theatre show tour again to village halls and more conventional theatre venues including its London premiere at The Place from 20 – 22 September.

 The year is 1978, isolated from the mainland, Eric Valentine and Bernard Humphries have been stationed at Echo Point lighthouse. The unlikely strangers have just begun to lay down foundations for this odd working relationship when the uncanny occurs. Point of Echoes marks the return of bgroup’s Ben Wright to the UK following three years spent in Sweden as Associate Director of Skånes Dansteater.

 The Place, London 17 Duke’s Road, London WC1H 9PY
