Bill Coleman (concept, dance, performance) Gordon Monahan (music, sound, visuals)

In Dollhouse, internationally renowned dancer/choreographer Bill Coleman inhabits an installation created by celebrated avant-garde composer Gordon Monahan.

Movement, tap dancing and performance art intermingle with manipulated objects - mechanical and electronic, handmade and found.

The result: a 60-minute theatrical disintigration that is not only an eye-opening spectacle but also a unique musical experience.

Coleman plays the role of modern fakir, suffering through a symphonic chaos of sight and sound.

Disruptive and surprising, Dollhouse walks a unique line between Artaudian theatre and slapstick, with Coleman as simultaneously conductor and instrument.

The performer's disastrous interaction with this world is a search for meaning in which "I'm alive!" is confirmed with every painful interaction.
