Design Statement
/ECHO follows the story of multiple individuals in their apartments, on the "same night," during different years. Projections were the main source of time in this show. Each scene was cued in such a way that the clock on the back wall would change speeds to emulate how much time is passing in the story. At the top of each scene, we also adjusted the date under the clock to secure us in our multi-decade timeline. We also manipulated the clock at times to help emphasize a specific moment or scene, further connecting our audience to the stories of these people.
