Canopy's Repertory Company presents their "light-hearted" exploration of a multi-faceted subculture.
The Goth Show, the newest aerial dance production from Canopy Studio's Repertory Company, offers a bit of much-needed levity in today's world. What began as a funny idea has evolved into a full-fledged show. Our dancers have found inspiration while exploring the concept of sub-culture, identity definitions, and nostalgia as it relates to the Goth lifestyle. What defines you? What is your style? Did you have a "dark" period? How does genre identity evolve in relation to age? All of these questions are up for discussion.
The aerialists in the Repertory Company will explore many sub-genres of Goth on invented metal triangles, an industrial fan, walkers, dance trapezes, ropes, ladders and poles. Joining the cast will be Artist in Residence, Constance Palmer, a circus artist specializing in aerial rope. And shhhhh.... there will also be other special guests!
Canopy's hope is that our art will provide a bit of fun in a world that we find increasingly heavy. So it's time to get your Goth on- put on your black eyeliner and break out The Cure. Everyone has a little Goth- and hopefully you won't have to dig too deep to find yours!
