Wells Hill is an immersive contemporary dance work that celebrates communication and explores humanity’s relationship with medium and performance. It draws inspiration from the work of Marshall McLuhan and Glenn Gould, two Canadian luminaries who altered how we consume art and information. With an incredible cast of performers backed by an innovative artistic team this work promises to be an exciting tapestry of movement and sound. Choreographer Vanessa Goodman’s thoughtful work strives to be a spectacle and has been praised for its “thrilling visual magic” (The Georgia Straight).
The work features some of Canada’s most exciting contemporary artists: dance artists Lara Barclay, James Gnam, Josh Martin, Lisa Gelley, Jane Osborne and Bevin Poole; an original sound composition by Gabriel Saloman; and a lighting design by James Proudfoot.
