Echo Village returns to the Memorial University Botanical Garden in time for the Fall Solstice, bringing together a cornucopia of soundscape artists, folk singers, actors, and aerial dancers for an immersive, sunset wander-about.
Co-presented by Sound Symposium and the Memorial University Botanical Garden, this third installment of Echo Village – Arcadia – is inspired by folk tales, mythological journeys, and the elusive search for utopia.
Performers roam freely, animating the garden with layers of sound and movement which blend reality with dream, while audiences are self-guided, free to explore the village, forest, pond, and join in the action and soundscape at will.
