Echo-Walk

Performance in the Swiss Alps
Watch
I live in the Netherlands where I am hardly involved with a natural echo. The flat landscape does not know and listen to my voice, which is swallowed by vastness and let me fall silent. I hear water, wind. After a while I give up to shout and to listen to myself. A strange cold silence embraces my voice. And then, all of a sudden I meet Echo, in Wald. Who is Echo? Where does she come from? What does she say? And why I feel touched by her?
(Barbara Philipp)

Description:
The art project Echo- Walk is a theatrical walk across the village Wald (ZH)in Switzerland. In the framework of the artist on a hill residency Barbara Philipp proposes to go on a trip where three spots are pointed out to encounter an acousmatic voice.
