DOLLHOUSE will not be performed on Monday 21 Aug.

Contemporary dance master and choreographer Bill Coleman portrays a figure whose whole world is literally falling in around him.

Sharing the stage with avant-garde composer Gordon Monahan an object-laden room collapses and breaks at the dancers every touch. Playing the role of modern fakir Coleman suffers through what at times are almost comic situations on his way to sonic and visual pandemonium.

Both eye-popping spectacle and unique score, DOLLHOUSE encompasses tap dancing and performance art while mechanical and electronic objects, both handmade and found, deliver disrupting and surprising rhythms for the ears and eyes.

‘No other choreographer creates events as mystical, unpretentious, and full of wonder.'
