Drum roll please.... after many delays due to a world health crisis, we are excited to announce that we will finally perform our long awaited Tofino Tree Festival nature-based performances of Habitats & Camouflage.
Aeriosa and Sarah E. Fuller have been collaborating to create a hybrid form of performance and art installation in their new work, Habitats & Camouflage. This piece is an exploration of the camouflaging quality of moths in the landscape. Large hooded capes with photo-transcribed images of moth markings will be worn by dancers who blend and disappear into the tree canopy and surrounding environment. Some species of moth caterpillars dig holes in the ground where they lie until appearing as full-grown adults. These predominantly nocturnal insects provide a natural magic show, disappearing and reappearing with layers of concealment and disguise.
We are excited to announce that sound artist Keri Latimer from Winnipeg will join us to play the Theremin live for Habitats & Camouflage. Keri’s website is: https://kerilatimer.com
She also has a band called Leaf Rapids. https://leafrapids.org
The work will be created on location and performance days and times will be determined based on tides, weather, and current COVID restrictions. There will be vignette-style episodes of cloaked dancers in trees, in a web, and on the beach.
The performances will adhere to all BC Provincial Health Orders. Limited reservations will be available, and audience stewards will ensure appropriate social distancing, mask requirements, and other COVID safety measures.
Stay tuned for more information about this upcoming performance in mid-September! If you would like to get on the waitlist to reserve your free ticket for our live performance, follow this link
