CONTESTED LAND is a work that is conceived and directed by Ensemble member Charlie Smith. Charlie is working with ideas that are both quietly political and socially evocative.

The Second Echo Ensemble is a curiosity-driven ensemble that values and grows creative relationships, unique perspectives, and group devised physical theatre practice. At the core of Second Echo is the ensemble of deviser/performers. The majority are young adults, many of whom live with intellectual disabilities and have been members of the group since its inception. Integration and diversity are at the heart of the ensemble's goals. Our work is not simply about access or equality. We are about new ways of thinking and new opportunities for engagement with a diverse pool of creative talent, serving both to widen and deepen the possibilities for the creative practices and conversations of the future.


Current Second Echo productions are made possible by generous support from, Arts Tasmania, City of Hobart, Creative Partnerships Australia MATCH, Moonah Arts Centre, Ogilvie High School, SEE Pozible supporters, Salamanca Arts Centre, Sidney Myer Fund's Capacity Building and Sector Strengthening program, Tasmanian Community Fund, Tasmanian Theatre Company, Tasmanian Regional Arts, and Tasmania Performs.
