La Chambre aux échos is a collective founded in Paris, France by Aleksi Barrière and Clément Mao-Takacs. From a project’s conception to its realization, each step and artistic decision results from a dialogue and aims for an organic and innovative artistic expression. This collaboration model relies on a network of regular collaborators functioning like a multidisciplinary workshop.
A platform for collaboration between arts and artists, La Chambre aux échos explores all the possibilities of music/theatre, from staged concerts to music theatre and opera performances, site-specific immersive experiences and outreach projects.
