Co-produced with Portland Ovations and State Theatre

Palaver Strings joins forces with contemporary dance collective, little house dance, to present Noisefloor an immersive physical, visual, and musical experience with the performers activating the stage as well as the space surrounding it. In this interdisciplinary performance for twelve musicians and seven dancers with a new composition by Courtney Swain, Noisefloor fully integrates the media of music and dance, involving choreographers in the process of music composition and the musicians in the dancers’ movement language. A unique theatrical perspective, utilizing the audience’s entire audio-visual field where audience members are seated around the theatre in an intentional way, Noisefloor explores the subjectivity of human reality, including but not limited to visual and auditory perception, the “field” of our lived experience—culture, objects, people, behaviours, thoughts and images.
