Celebrate Canada 150+ with emerging local company Action at a Distance and their world premiere of Wells Hill, a work that meditates on prolific Canadians Marshall McLuhan and Glenn Gould, commissioned by SFU Woodward’s Cultural Programs (SFUW), and co-presented by DanceHouse, and SFU’s School for the Contemporary Arts (SCA).
DanceHouse, SFUW, and SCA are proud to support rising choreographer and Action at a Distance Artistic Director Vanessa Goodman in this exceptional project. In Wells Hill, seven outstanding dancers splice together themes of technology and communication in this provocative, vibrant new work based on the sweeping philosophies of Marshall McLuhan and Glenn Gould. These two Canadian luminaries altered how we consume art and information, and their prescient ideas provide an engaging framework for a performance that is both visceral and cerebral.
Goodman, choreographer and projection artist, has brought together a powerhouse team of Vancouver creative collaborators on Wells Hill, including celebrated composers Loscil (Scott Morgan) and Gabriel Saloman, lighting designer James Proudfoot and projection artists Ben Didier and Milton Lim. Each element expertly interwoven into a captivating, immersive performance.
Two premium tickets to Action at a Distance at the Fei and Milton Wong Experimental Theatre at SFU Goldcorp Centre for the Arts on Friday, November 24 at 8 p.m.
