Point of Echoes

bgroup & China Plate present

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.

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.

“The whole audience was mesmerised throughout…[an] amazing performance”
Claire Marshall, Carn to Cove
 
“Funny, thoughtful and disturbing in equal measure”

Venue: The Marine Hall

Join bgroup performer Marta Masiero for a two hour workshop inspired by their latest production Point of Echoes that opens at the Waterfront Cafe, Marine Hall on Friday 9th March.

You’ll also get the chance to recreate and adapt one of the sequences from the show itself!

The workshop is great for:

  • People with all (or no) levels of dance experience
  • Those interested in finding out more about how a dance show is made
  • Experienced dancers looking to pursue a career in dance or the arts
  • Anyone curious about dance and trying something new!

Marta is a dancer in Point of Echoes and has worked with bgroup in many previous productions. She has extensive teaching experience having taught at leading dance schools (London Contemporary Dance School, Rambert School, London Studio Centre and the Scottish School of Contemporary Dance) as well as teaching open dance classes and leading community workshops in dance and choreography.

This is a free workshop but reserving a place in advance is advised! To book your place, or if you have any questions please call Stephie Jessop on 01254 674 777. Please note places for the workshop can not be booked through the Marine Hall box office.
