Canvas 5 x 5

Commissioned and premiered by Mocean Dance (2012)

Choreography: Tedd Robinson
4 dancers | 30 minutes

In a timeless world of grace and wonder, Canvas 5 x 5 is a masterful intertwining of the familiar with the excitingly new. Combining a traditional maritime soundscape with striking contemporary imagery the dancers manipulate over-sized canvas into whimsical and profound designs. The juxtaposition of the calming Celtic rhythm and the contagious kinetic movements is interplayed with Robinson’s acclaimed signature use of elegance and beauty.
