ECCE begins it's 2016-17 season deepening partnerships with some of Boston's and Cambridge's leading cultural institutions.

Our new collaboration with the Rose Kennedy Greenway

We begin this season by exploring a new collaboration with one of Boston's greenest and liveliest places. With an event that combines dance, sculpture, music and the spirit of public art, we share the interdisciplinary nature of our mission.

Our continued residency at Le Laboratoire, Cambridge

Across three events, we explore the dynamic conversation between France and America through the lenses of technology, language and society. This residency is sponsored by the French American Cultural Exchange.

Our new residency at the Boston Athenaeum

Through this new residency we present a series of programs that recognize the historically significant role this civic center has played in Boston as a hub of civic discourse.
