Echoes Minerva Scientifica Tour 2018 – 2019

“First class acting, singing …high spirited and entertaining”
ThreeWeeks Review

“The singing is absolutely marvellous … and the music
beautifully composed”
Fringe Review

Bringing its five-star Edinburgh Festival Fringe show on tour across Scotland,
Echoes celebrates the triumphs and histories of the nation’s unsung female
scientists through a blend of music, song, performance and spoken word.
Featuring contemporary Scottish singer and composer Frances M Lynch, alongside a host of musicians and performers, the show will entertain audiences across Scotland as it tours the country, engaging with local communities along the way.
Each performance of Echoes is uniquely designed for each venue – with the performers and composers drawing inspiration from nature, the community and its history. From working with
the RSPB on the Isle of Coll to a collaboration between BBC Singer Margaret Cameron and the
Killin Community Choir, audiences can expect each show to be distinctively tailored to the local
environment.
Created by the award-winning music theatre company electric voice theatre, Echoes is a
Minerva Scientifica project aiming to bring together professional performers with community
musicians and school children, to raise awareness of the rich heritage and deep connections between
Scottish music and science, and to inspire the next generation of future scientists
