Works Echo Edouard Lock IMG1

ÉCHO, is a new work created and directed by world-renowned choreographer and visionary, Edouard Lock. Interpreted by Principal dancer of Les Grands Ballets Canadiens, Rachele Buriassi, and produced by PHI Studio, ÉCHO is a work intertwined in reflections and immersed in a cinematic night. Mirrored approximations ebb along surfaces like shadow on water as a ballerina peers into herself, her memories floating up, around and under her, with each leading to a different trail and a different outcome. One shared beginning, one source, one end, multiple echos.

Edouard Lock directs and choreographs. Rachele Buriassi dances, the rhythm and cadence of her movements flowing through the choreography like wind in grass as James O’Callaghan’s score resonates with both dissonance and harmony, cooling every image that passes through his precise and evocative score.

A world where illusion and dance are derived from feelings of solitude during the first wave of confinement.
