the artists

Rite of Spring

At the heart of Second Echo is the ensemble of artists who make and perform the work. Some live with disabilities and some do not. Our work is not simply about access or equality. We are about new ways of thinking and creating. Formed in 2005 the company has premiered twelve major works, toured in Australia and internationally and is a leading creative force in the development of a narrative that speaks to the rich diversity of Tasmania.
