Echoes From The Earth

22nd September

Echoes From The Earth is a FREE event and invites audiences along for an accessible promenade dance work that weaves through natural spaces.

Following a call from deep below the earth, two lost travellers embark on a journey through the sights and sounds of nature. Take a journey through nature following one of the two adventurers, beginning apart, but finding one another as they chase a mysterious echo.

Echoes From The Earth is created by choreographer Chris Pavia, a senior artist with Stopgap Dance Company. The work is inspired by Chris’ experiences of the woodlands where he grew up in the South Downs National Parks.

Performances: 1:30pm & 5pm

Workshops: 2pm & 5:30pm (optional after the performances)

Tickets are free but must be booked in advance.

About Stopgap Dance Company: 

Stopgap Dance Company is driven by a diverse creative team who uses dance as a movement for change.

Our vision is to create an inclusive world where diversity is not just accepted but pursued, a world where no one is limited by prejudice against D/deaf, disabled, or neurodivergent people.

Working with an artform shaped by human touch and energised by the spark of connectivity, our work demonstrates the compelling power of diversity and inclusivity. We move together to create a remarkable experience that transforms society’s perceptions of difference and dismantle the inequity of privilege, in dance and in all aspects of living, collaborating, and creating together as humans.

Our work is both focused on and born out of the company’s rigorous investment in equity and inclusive culture. We are committed to removing barriers to dance, nurturing the talents of dancers born into any body and any mind. We are in coalition with a wave of organisations moving towards a better representation of diversity on our stages and in society.

We are a global leader of disability access in dance and continuously examine best practice. We actively advocate for the industry and the wider world to become more inclusive.

Tickets are free but must be booked in advance.
