Centipeople

Social Interruption

We move quickly from one place to the next. When we arrive in a new space we form a variety of mini performances, images and soundscapes with ourselves. If interacted with, this morphs/changes into a new picture. We encourage the audience to move with us....to join the centipede. We also encourage audience members to climb over us, to crawl through us, to find ways to move together. We have glow-in-the-dark costumes by night, with an array of fluorescent colours and stars and moons from the night sky, comple with glow in the dark paints and faces.

As we move the spectators can join on our moving line, making a big chain. When in a new space we will make shapes out of our bodies that the audience can interact with, sing with, dance with, play with. Outside of the group we have a live director who encourages the audience to interact with the Centipeople, we have props (hats, glasses, glitter, wings etc) that when placed on a Centiperson will make them do a trick, dance, song.....change their EXPRESSION in a canon like wave! The audience are encouraged to move with the Centipeople.
