Performer Profile: Half Second Echo

dark monk

Dark Monk, Deep Church follows the dynamic and secretive lives of three half-crow/half-man monks undertaking a mysterious ritual. The piece opens up at the brink of these monks’ spiritual ritual as they lay the groundwork for the final ceremony.

Half Second Echo is a Toronto based contemporary dance collective that serves as a platform for the creative exploration of the moving body. Since its creation in 2013 Half Second Echo has had the opportunity to collaborate with Forcier Stage Works, Applebox Film Company, Intergalactic Arts Collective, Great Moving Dancers/Good Morning Dance, Jesse Dell, Irvin Chow, Dave Wilson and the McMaster Dance Company, as well as present works in DanceOntario Weekend and both the Toronto and Hamilton Fringe Festivals. HSE is ecstatic to be the house troupe for the Body Brake series curated by Anandam Dancetheatre and presented by Theatre Passe Muraille.

Half Second Echo will be performing Dark Monk, Deep Church this Friday at Seasonal Activities, v.ii
