Description

A wonderful immersive and sensory experience for all ages. Three performers dive into our felt experiences of the natural world, dancing on a circular, hand-woven in Mongolian felt floor, surrounded closely by spectators who are welcome and indispensable to this unique visual and auditory experience. Created by choreographer Bill Coleman in collaboration with dancers and with kindergarten children, Felt asks us to recall the wonder of life and experience a performance as we might a community gathering. Live musical accompaniment. Open to all ages, no experience required. Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
