One of the most cutting-edge dance theater companies in Europe, Motionhouse makes its Houston debut with Scattered: A Meteor Shower of Unlikely Moments. Presented by Society for the Performing Arts, Scattered incorporates dance, film, aerial technology and acrobatics to create a show that’s equal parts theater, circus and fairy tale. Working on a huge, seemingly endless curved floor, the performers dance, tumble, fly and bungee-jump through projected images.
''We create startling, passionate dance theater,'' says Motionhouse Artistic Director Kevin Finnan via press materials. ''Our productions are designed to challenge as well as delight our audiences, and they fuse images with action and dynamism. Our performances are rooted in dance but draw on theater, circus, acrobatics and film to create works that make audience members think and feel.''
