Star Gazer: A Trek Into Outer Space
April 21 - April 23, 2017
Star Gazer: A Trek Into Outer Space blends 3D mapping with dance and circus arts to fly you through our solar system. Stella is a young and curious girl who gazes out her bedroom window one night wondering what it would be like to visit the other planets. Join Stella on an adventure through our Milky Way with this fun and exciting performance. Calouche’s creativity is at its best in Star Gazer with whirling dancers on rope and harness as Jupiter’s Red Eye and billowing white silks with swirling contemporary dancers as Neptune’s gusty winds.
CC&Co. is collaborating with Charlotte-based Event Stretch (http://www.eventstretch.com) for the 3D video image mapping. Event Stretch’s creative team led by Andrew Anthony will work closely with Caroline Calouche and Jennifer O’Kelly, their scenic and lighting designer, to reproduce the mesmerizing sensation of traveling through outer space. Anderson will use three large projectors to cover the stage plus scenic elements created by O’Kelly to project moving images of our solar system’s celestial bodies that will interact at times with the dancers.
