Feather Boa Wall

270 feather boas, 5 gallons of fireproofing, 11 dancers

Description:

Fifty-seven 24 foot tall feather boas make a video projection 4th wall.  As the show begins, a man stands, walks through a doorway in the curtain, music starts, he turns back to us, and the wall releases. The boas float to the floor individually. A line of feather boas is left to separate audience and performer.  Scattered feathers blow and softly float on stage floor as 9 dancers perform precision choreography moving the audience to laughter and tears.
