Habitats & Camouflage is a Tofino Tree Festival free public presentation, produced by Aeriosa Dance Society.
Tickets available here.
Ucluelet choreographer Julia Taffe and Winnipeg visual artist Sarah E. Fuller are collaborating to create a hybrid form of dance performance and art installation in Tofino from September 17th.
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.
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.
