Echo Productions: THE WALK opens this week!

Echo Productions is a Toronto based arts collective. 
Formed in 2012 by core founders 
Victoria Fuller (Producer/Director/Actor) Erin Brookhouse (Producer/Choreographer/Actor) 
and Adrian Yearwood (Producer/Writer/Actor). 
Drawn together by our shared passion for intensely physical theatre, 
we produce raw & stylised performances 
which fuse mediums to create innovative, original work.

Our company debut was a hugely successful production 
of Anthony Burgess's 'A Clockwork Orange', 
staged at The Electric Theatre in Kensington in the fall of 2012. 

We aim to create live theatre that communicates 
viscerally & physically to audiences 
& do so by interpreting text through movement 
& music creating visually & aurally stimulating works.

Our sophomore offering is an original work 
by company founder Adrian Yearwood. 
'The Walk' is an adaptation of the story of Orpheus and Eurydice, 
a tale from ancient Greek mythology about love, trust, and loss. 
When Orpheus discovers that Eurydice, his recently deceased wife, 
may not be lost to him forever, 
he commits to journeying down to Hades to bring her back. 
Hades, however does not give up souls easily, 
and forces Orpheus to play his game in order to win her back. 
We are thrilled to debut this original work which fuses theatre, 
contemporary movement & live music.

Performing are Adrian Yearwood, Victoria Fuller, 
Jennifer Fraser, Robyn Noftall & Erin Brookhouse
with live music by Kyle Duffin.

Original Music has also been written specifically for this work 
by Ryan Brookhouse and Etienne Levesque
