CHARLE MOBILE AND THE WINDOW TO THE WORLD

Charlie is your average kid living an average life. That is, until birthday number 10 rolls around! Charlie's parents have an extra special gift to make it a birthday to remember - Charlie's first cell phone. Every kid's dream, right? But with great power comes great responsibility. The world is in the palm of Charlie's hand, and we explore how technology, maturity, and responsibility intersect through the eyes of a 10 year old.

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. Spectators and artists will both enjoy some time on stage as witnesses and creators, with the performance taking place on a circular surface  representing a sharing circle (which is transported and set up anywhere).  Three dancers will perform the choreography with sound and movement emanating from the audience to suggest wind, waves and chaos – the elemental vortex.

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 there 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 theatre, spoken word, music and movement.   

Little Red Theatre is looking forward to collaborating with Bill Coleman on a project that celebrates the story of humanity!  Dance and theatre make great hand maidens as they always includes another of our favourite art forms: music! This collaboration will allow us at little red theatre to benefit from the expertise of dance professionalsand a composer that specializes in dance in order to explore new avenues of expression.
