THE ECHO DRIFT | PROTOTYPE
The Echo Drift, an operatic collaboration between Mikael Karlsson, Elle Kunnos de Voss, and Kathryn Walat, centers on a convicted murderer trapped in a timeless prison. This world premiere production switches between the confines of a tiny cell and an expansive visual world of hand drawn animation, exploring the psychology of a woman struggling to overcome her nature and the freewheeling tendencies of the mind when robbed of external stimuli.
