FELT is a live performance work that takes place in the round inviting lots of audience participation in realizing a group sound score.
Three dancers perform a choreography by Bill Coleman with sound and movement emanating from the audience to suggest wind, waves and chaos – the elemental vortex.
Performed on a 15' x 15' wool felt floor designed by Robin Poitras and Edward Poitras, FELT is a constantly evolving kaleidoscope of forms and images supported by the audiences rhythmically accompaniment. Audience interact with the physical and sonic images that arise and pass away.
Created in partnership with Bill Coleman and Little Red Theatre Company and developed in collaboration with kindergarten children all over Ontario, New Dance Horizons are thrilled to extend this evolving creation through our Residency at the MacKenzie Art Gallery.
FELT performances will be followed with a 10 - 15 minute talk back period. We hope that all ages including parents, teachers and arts professionals will find something wonderful and exciting in this tapestry of movement, theatre and spoken word.
