LOS ANGELES BASED PERFORMANCE COMPANY TO MAKE EAST COAST PREMIERE OF "ECHO" AT THE CAMBRIDGE MULTICULTURAL ARTS CENTER AUGUST 1-4, 2015
Like the continuous vibrations of an ECHO, this performances uses the arts in all forms; dance, theater, and multimedia to tell the story about the TransAtlantic Slave Trade. ECHO explores the ramifications of that experience and how the resounding sound of forced displacement of tens of millions of African bodies still resides within us today. It pays homage to a traumatic/horrific past to bring hope and healing for the present and future. B. Dunn Movement, Dance and Theater Company, in collaboration with the Cambridge Multicultural Arts Center, will be presenting ECHO, August 1-4, 2015. This is Brigette Dunn Korpela's most recent work and marks her artistic return to her home town of Cambridge. ECHO will be making its East Coast Premiere at the Cambridge Multicultural Arts Center's main stage with all performances free to the public. Tickets must be reserved in advance through the Centers website; http://www.multiculturalartscenter.org/. ECHO has been made free to the public due to generous support of the center and public crowd funding through the Arts, Culture & Heritage Preservation Fund as a testament to art as free education. ECHO i s a truly interdisciplinary dance performance that examines themes of race, masked identity and systematic erasure of black narratives. The play explores the diaspora.
