Welcome to The Desert

“The suspense echo::system offers is not necessarily one of thought but of anticipation of what will happen next technologically, sonically, rythmically, and visually.” Dr. Stephanie Leigh Batiste

In an environment made “live” by the integration of interactive technology, performers and audience move within a full sensory landscape—witnessing the story that unfolds as a way to re-examine contemporary urban life.

By engaging in discourse between diverse disciplines of composition, choreography, architecture, writing, digital code and the visual arts, echo::system questions one perspective to illuminate another, including science and its methods. echo:: system creates a new awareness for collaborators and audiences alike of the potential relevance of live art, the resonance between art and science and the impact of technology on the American landscape.
