New Animal

New Animal

A Co-production of AoD and The 605 Collective

Premiere: The Cultch, Vancouver, 2012.
Toured to Guelph Dance Festival, Made in BC Tour, Toronto, PEI, Halifax

New Animal is a multi media work created with, and specifically for, The 605 collective.  The dance exploits the supreme versatility of five dancers – Lisa Gelley, Shay Kuebler, Josh Martin, Dave Raymond and Amber Funk-Barton. Both playful and intimate, New Animal walks a tightrope between fleeting moments of control and radical shifts in dynamics. The tension between flesh ultimately pushes the structure towards the edge of chaos and entropy. The collective effort to maintain form under pressure requires a resultant acceleration of energy from the feral performers, and willingness to adapt against imminent disorder.

New Animal is set to an eclectic soundtrack assembled and manipulated by Roger Tellier-Craig, and features film elements by Dana Gingras and Yannick Grandmont with lighting designed by Robert Sondergaard.
