A moment of like velvet in taste form sounds of people waking up in the morning if you feel a little touch phantom smells an image that defines sweet and sour ssshhhhh...
Premiering in June is an original dance work created and performed by young emerging artists from the Wellington community. Try This is an in depth look at the human senses, the most basic but often the most exciting tools we have as human beings. Are they given the value they deserve?
Tasting, smelling, hearing, feeling, seeing. In the fast pace of modern life do you make the most of these stimulations?
A thoughtful and curious work, Try This looks to open the eyes of the audience to sensory experiences that are part of every day life. Along with an original score by sound artist Emi Pogoni, Director Fleur Cameron has been working with a group of talented dancers to explore the extremes of sensory perception. Things are eaten, sounds are heard, noses sniff, every sense is given it's own spotlight.
Regular updates on the projects progress are posted to the show's Facebook page along with observations, articles and videos, giving an interested public insight into the creative process. Followers are also encouraged to comment and share their own experiences and ideas.
