Behind each Cercle show, there are unique stories and moments that until now have remained untold... Echo System is an immersive journey into the places, characters, and experiences that bring our shows to life. It's about meeting interesting people. It’s about feeling and experiencing somewhere through its art, culture and the stories of its communities. It’s about special moments in a special place. Put simply, Echo System is a first-hand account from a curious traveller, visiting a place for the first time. It could be anyone, it could be you! In this first series we go off the beaten-track in Iceland, Egypt and Switzerland, and make many surprising encounters. You'll meet an intriguing composer and craftsman making stone instruments in a remote corner of Iceland, hear a Muslim farmer talk about sharing land, seeds and friendship with his Christian neighbours, and discover how radical events in the 16th century transformed Geneva forever. Presented & produced by Frank McWeeny. Executive producers: Marcelo Velit & Derek Barbolla.
