Echolalia 3.5K Adelaide College of the Arts – Stables

Echolalia is A Kallo Collective production created and performed by Jen McArthur. The show has taken home several awards for its use of silly, physical theatre and dance. There is a deeper tone, which explores social etiquettes and graces. After working with autistic children on a holiday camp, Jen McArthur created the character ‘Echo’ who does not register social graces.

As the show continues Echo continues to highlight our unspoken social rules. Working through the fears of social interaction and Echo’s encounters with at times farcical, hilarious situations secure a light hearted mood. However the show overall explores more serious issues, they are handled in a touching, funny manner.
