Walking the streets of a grey city,
the shadows attempt to penetrate.
From the back recess of an unlikely alley
a twinkle of light demands attention
A shimmer of hope
penetrates the soul
It ripples far and wide.
Thing with Feathers is a collaboration between Kathleen Doyle, Gabrielle New, Norm Skipp and Paula van Beek for The Space Between Performance Collective. It is a multidimensional work that encompasses experimental performance, masked body-morphing costume and original soundscape created from the performers in the space.
It explores the journey from despair to hope and the notion that hope can be found in unexpected places.
