How can we feel the cycle of life through the seasons?

Show summary

Echos is a choreographic work that takes the spectator through the seasons.
Scenes, sometimes fiery, sometimes delicate, always touching, where the six performers evolve in a space that is dreamlike and refined.
A movement style, music, and a visual setting for each season, make us feel the different atmospheres that exist in the seasons.

The person who created the show wants

  • Inspire the lives of young and old alike by stimulating their imagination.
  • Share her outlook, her feelings, and her memories of childhood, concerning the seasons.
  • Elicit emotions through the poetry of movement and through the profundity of the human body, rather than with words.

The person who created the show doesn’t want

  • Minimize the intelligence of children

You don’t need to be an expert to appreciate a work of art.

There is no right or wrong perception/interpretation.

There isn’t necessarily something to understand.

Just because you don’t enjoy a show once doesn’t mean that will always be the case.


There’s more to a cultural experience than liking or disliking a work of art. All the nuances that you might feel may be explored.

Everything you experience during a show is important, even boredom.


Children need to express their emotions during the show.

“Shushing” during the show can be more bothersome than the children’s laughter.


The support we are suggesting encourages positive expectations that will sharpen the children’s attention.
