March 14, 2017
ECHODRAMA Cultural Group is currently implementing a Mobility Project (Learning Mobility of Individuals) with the title “Training in Contemporary Dance-Theatre” and code number 2016-1-EL01-KA104-023236, co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union through the Greek State Scholarships Foundation (Ι.Κ.Υ.), the National Agency for coordination of this programme.
ECHODRAMA Cultural Group was founded in 2006. It is a civil non-profit company with a long experience in creating and presenting dance and music-dance performances in Greece and abroad. These performances promote contemporary culture, are inspired by Greek history and tradition and are presented with contemporary means (contemporary dance, contemporary music compositions, contemporary audiovisual means, digital projections). ECHODRAMA has created several remarkable productions, such as "RHEI - EVERYTHING FLOWS" (inspired by Heraclitus' concept of perpetual movement), "THE CAVE" (a contemporary look at the cave allegory of Plato’s "Republic"), “APOLLO-AMATERASU: TRACING SUN” (under the auspices of the Embassy of Japan in Greece), “MEMORIES OF OLYMPIA” and “THE MURDERESS” (based on Alexandros Papadiamandis’ novel). The members of ECHODRAMA have collaborated with Amnesty International, the Red Cross and the Opera of Dusseldorf.
