Full Circle Instructor, Heather Laura Gray, has years of dance and dance teaching experience. Heather is one of Vancouver’s top rated choreographers, having worked on a variety of film and TV projects. Next weekend, Heather takes a short break from teaching Pilates at Full Circle Studio to present a contemporary dance show of her own creation: THE TUNNEL.
“THE TUNNEL” is a contemporary dance theatre production that asks its audience to enter the maze of the mind. Set in a dreamlike mind space, a black box theatre is transformed into a complex void of original projections and light art. Dancers move through a staged consciousness, immersed in the evolving light show as they struggle through turbulent thoughts battling themselves and each other. As their bodies bend and weave to the genre warping blend of music and sound design, the projections alter their shape, playing with the audience’s perception of what they are seeing. Heather Laura Gray is excited to be collaborating with a team of highly creative and award winning talent to bring THE TUNNEL to life. Collaborators include: cutting edge projection and light design artists Hfour, the extremely versatile music composer Hayden Baptiste, as well as an international cast of powerful dance artists Emily Tellier (New York), Katie Lowen (Vancouver) and Michael Demski (France), along with a dozen emerging dance artists in various apprentice roles.
