That is exactly what long standing Echo members, Foreign Affairs Theatre, do. They bring to light international stories by working with playwrights and translators form all over the globe. Plays have often been an important way to explore social and political issues, but Foreign Affairs Theatre also challenge artistic and cultural boundaries by exploring what it means to be human through different viewpoints and voices.
Through Echo’s platform, Foreign Affairs Theatre were introduced to the branding geniuses of Adventure Stories. They worked with Adventure Stories to establish a new voice and branding style for Foreign Affairs that was central to their core values and practices. The new brand impressed, and Adventure Stories even won a Gold Indigo Design Award for their brilliant work in creating it!
