Blinded by Sound, Playing at Life
— The Dance Current

Prolific Canadian dancer/choreographer Bill Coleman confronts a series of almost biblical challenges in this cataclysmic new performance of tap, performance art, and dance-theatre, entwined with mechanical and electronic manipulated objects, handmade and found, render rhythms equally sonic and visual, about a man out of sync with his surroundings.

Objects fall, shatter and move of their own accord creating a unique soundscape that accompanies one man's descent into chaos. Coleman, a master performer, plays the role of modern fakir as he navigates through situations, at times verging on the comic, culminating in a hypnotic symphony of sight and sound created and performed in collaboration with celebrated avant-garde composer Gordon Monahan.
