The year is 1978, isolated from the mainland, Eric Valentine and Bernard Humphries have been stationed at Echo Point lighthouse, somewhere off the coast of England. The unlikely strangers have just begun to lay down foundations for this odd working relationship when the uncanny occurs.
Point of Echoes is a new theatre/dance piece by internationally renowned choreographer Ben Wright.
The show has a really strong narrative about love, death and the supernatural that’s told both through text and movement and features an original score composed by writer/composer Stuart Warwick. As Ben describes it, the show is a mix between a Wes Anderson movie and The Twilight Zone.

Our Creative Learning Team says
Ideal for KS3, GCSE and A level students who are exploring the uncanny or creating a sense of suspense in their own work. Point of Echoes uses both dance and dialogue to tell the story and will provide opportunities to discuss what physical work can bring to a piece of theatre.
