Site specific walk performance. Since 2014
Echo Walk is a ballad through space, time and intimicy, in which the public shares the stories told by the performers.
A time when false memories are grafted to the real memories of a place at a specific time. Memories of strata, stories intertwine, not allowing the viewer to differentiate right from wrong, memory from imagination.
The walk allows a visit to the past, not in the sense of going back in time - which would imply a linear reading of time - but as a past which coexists with nowadays and who would let see, hear and live, as the first time. The performance is an attempt to make visible an alteration, as much as a historical memory than an individual memory and collective imagination.
Here, the questions that arise are: What is the boundary between memory and history? What is the time of this place?
Echo Walk sets the scene for time and reality to make us more appreciate their limitations, the notion that we have through the prism of a story that we can all share. Thus, the memory of a place or what we perceive is rebuilt.
This project has been realized with the support and collaboration of the World Stage Design Festival 2017 in Taipei, the Fljótstunga Residency in Iceland (spring, 2015), in the public spaces of Jardin des Plantes (2018) and the Centquatre space in Paris (2016).
