echoes is an affective terrain: a glitch between the intangible and tangible. The performance is a choreographic total-installation, a tactile landscape, that circludes the performers as well as the audience.
echoes is expanding perspectives on emotional states and confinements of bodies. Through responsive choreographies, colorful draperies and an oozing sound and light universe, the piece portrays affective states suspended in time and between people.
echoes is based on subtle, social choreographies and the performance is an invitation to experience through the multitude of senses.
echoes is investigating how a single body can hold several emotional states and how a collective body can hold an emotion cooperatively. A polyphony of paradoxical states co-existing and colliding.

Klara Utke Acs has created echoes in close collaboration with scenographer Tove Dreiman, composer Soho Rezanejad, dancers Yaa Aisin, Am Ertl, Suvi Kemppainen, Escarleth Pozo and light designer Christoffer Lloyd. 
echoes had its premiere at MDT in Stockholm in September 2021 and is presented by Dansehallerne October 14-16, 2021 at Copenhagen Contemporary.
