Project Description

Tottering Biped Theatre

Physical Illusions – Performance (Gr. 3-6)

This impressive performance presents a series of short stories performed through the traditional French storytelling technique of Mime. Using his original take on physical theatre, Trevor Copp presents an underwater adventure, a frantic search for a missing prized possession, a dreamer who is fascinated with the stars and a man determined to learn how to fly.

Liquid Lead – Performance (High School)

‘Liquid Lead Dancing’ is a gender neutral system of partner dancing created by Trevor Copp and Jeff Fox. Trevor and Jeff deliver a talk and workshop promoting the idea of gender equality in dance and life. In this convention-breaking performance, they demonstrate ‘Liquid Lead’ dance technique in salsa, Rumba, and Waltz, and invite students to try it out for themselves.
