PUBLIC STATEMENT ON COVID-19 (CORONAVIRUS)

Friday 13th March 2020

Given yesterday’s unprecedented announcement by the Irish government and ongoing Public Health Agency updates regarding the coronavirus pandemic, we have decided to take the proactive and precautionary measure of suspending all public classes at Echo Echo Studios until further notice. At present we expect this pause to last until Sunday 29th March and we will be monitoring future government guidance as it arises.

Benno Voorham will show the work produced in his recent residency tonight (Friday 13th) at 7pm and tomorrow (Saturday 14th) at 8pm. This will be for a small invited audience and we will be taking appropriate health and safety precautions. If you would like to join this audience please contact us by email or private message. You may also call Steve Batts, Echo Echo Artistic Director on 07946586941.

Echo Echo Studios and office will remain open until further notice however staff will be encouraged to work at home during this period when possible.

This is a difficult time for artists, many who work on freelance basis, so we will strive to reduce the impact of this pause on the Echo Echo Ensemble and other artists we work with.

Physical contact is often very much the point of dancing and moving together and the opposite of ‘social distancing’, so while we may be a little ahead of the curve with this suspension we believe it is the socially responsible course of action.

Thank you for your understanding.

Best wishes to all of our audiences, participants, partners and colleagues at this time.

Don’t hesitate to get in touch if you need further information.
