THE STORY OF LIFE is a communal re-telling  of creation myths and an exploration of the timeline of human activity in poetic visuals, movement and sound. A dance-theatre collaboration with little red theatre and dancer Bill Coleman,  with recorded interviews with children from different cultural backgrounds and an exploration of the timeline of life on our beautiful planet in poetic visuals, movement and sound.  We present stories which celebrate cultural diversity and possible futures taking into account our present day relationship with the living earth, as guardians and  visitors that share this planet with other creatures.  This performance takes place in the round with audience sitting on all four sides of the gym representing a sharing circle. Three dancers perform the choreography with sound and movement emanating from the audience to suggest wind, waves and chaos – the elemental vortex.   

LOTS OF AUDIENCE PARTICIPATION. 

L’HISTOIRE DE LA VIE
Une célébration des mythes de la création et du périple de l'humanité, présentée grâce à des visuels, mouvements et sons poétiques. Marionnettes, lumières et images colorées traversent l'histoire de l'activité humaine, célèbrent la montée et la chute des civilisations, capturant les images de ces cultures qui passent devant nos yeux, alors que nous explorons d'autres possibles futurs. Ce spectacle sera joué au milieu d'un cercle afin de créer un cercle du partage traditionnel. Beaucoup de participation du public.

The dance theatre piece THE STORY OF LIFE is 45 minutes long and for Ages 4 - 12 (Kindergarten to Grade 5 in schools) and will be presented with simplicity, wonder and lots of spunk. Our school performances will be followed up after presentation with a 10 - 15 minute talk back period.  As well, we will provide studyguide materials for all teachers attending so that the students will be well prepared.   We hope that all ages including parents, teachers and arts professionals will find something wonderful and exciting in this tapestry of movement, theatre, spoken word and movement.   

COST: $625 PER SHOW (NO HST)
MAXIMUM AUDIENCE CAPACITY IN GYM: 
275 STUDENTS per show
