Canadian Dance Troupe Brings Sheep Behavior to Life
CORPUS, a Canadian dance theater troupe, will start their first U.S. tour at the Long Island Children's Museum with a performance entitled Les Moutons - in other words, The Sheep. The performers combine dance, performance art, and slapstick to bring the world of sheep behavior to their audiences.
Audiences will observe a strange and hilarious universe as CORPUS re-enacts the results of their carefully studied overview of sheep behavior. Three white ewes (Julie, Marie-louise, Bernadette) and one black ram (César) comprise the “cast” under the watchful eye of a stoic shepherd. During the performance, audience members will observe such routine activities as shearing, feeding, milking and more. The piece is interactive allowing audience members to pet and feed the “sheeps” and for the “sheeps” to mix and mingle with them.
