DUO LOOPS - Razzamataz 2016-2017One enormous hula hoop, two eccentric characters… and loads of fun! David and Becky are a loveable, dynamic duo, despite their flaring personality differences. Duo Hoops will dazzle you as much with their tricks as with their bizarre wit and absurd humour. They come together to hula hoop (with hoops of all sizes), juggle and toss each other around.

Professor Wick’s Incredible Magic Factory - Razzamataz 2016-2017Professor Wick invites the audience on a tour of his Incredible Magic Factory where he designs and constructs magical props. He reveals the fact that some of his best ideas come from the pages of children’s literature such as ‘Alice In Wonderland’, ‘Aladdin’, ‘Pinocchio’, and ‘Peter Pan’.  The professor pulls some of these books off the shelf and demonstrates the magic inspired by these timeless classics. Floating on a magic carpet, stepping through a mirror and turning a puppet into a real person: these are just some of the magical adventures that the audience will experience when they witness the wonders of Professor Wick.

Set against the backdrop of live African and Caribbean music, Saraka unites dancer to musician and invites the audience to witness dancers with virtuosic grace and athleticism. Saraka is a union of contemporary dance, African and Caribbean music and a testament to the power of the drum.

“Terzetto”

Sunday, April 9th, 2017 at 2:00pm
Northern Lights Performing Arts Pavilion, Haliburton
by L’Aubergine (Quebec)

TERZETTO - Razzamataz 2016-2017Three doors, three chairs, three wooden boards…One light bulb…

In this timeless setting, the very different worlds of three clowns will collide. Gradually forgetting their own individuality, they build rapport around what they hold most dear: their playfulness, their ‘joie de vivre’ and an uncontrollable imagination.
 
Struggling with their own silliness and enthusiasm, which sometimes prevent them from seeing further than the tips of their toes, they meet, size each other up, experience some friction and create new bonds based on their unique abilities. For one of them, it is the flexibility of her body, for another, it is the tessitura of her voice, and finally, for the last one, it is the sheer excess of her constructions.
 
Through various scenes forged with humor and flair, this performance examines the topic of human relationships. It inspires playfulness, joy, and—most of all—lots of laughter, as these three clowns have a few tricks up their sleeves.
