Bill Coleman: Dollhouse
Bill Coleman’s Dollhouse depicts a man whose world is literally falling down on top of him. Informed by such diverse sources as Artaud to The Three Stooges, Coleman is a man out sync with his surroundings as he tap dances and prat falls through a booby-trapped set creating symphonic chaos.
The sound for Dollhouse was created by award-winning artist Gordon Monahan and features elements by Saskatchewan artist Edward Poitras. The result is a tragic, horrifying, bombastic and irrepressibly funny performance. Presented in partnership with The Dunlop Art Gallery.
