REVIEW: Echo by Zoielogic
12:20am Thursday 17th October 2013 in Entertainments
ECHO promised to be an “all-male dance explosion”, and it lived up to that description from the start.
It began with a bang and continued in the same vein.
Choreographer Zoie Golding aimed to explore fragility and masculinity and did so with skill.
The small group of dancers told the story of mild-mannered office worker Arthur who lives in a world where order and routine are everything.
When his scissors are borrowed from his desk, it pushes him to the brink and a mundane office turns into a war zone.
This show manages to portray the difficulties of finding your place as a young man in a world where your peers often ask you to be tougher than you really are, and examines the consequences that this can have.
It’s interesting and different, and presented in a hard-hitting way that could do the difficult job of capturing the attention of the very young men whose dilemmas it explores.
