SPECTRUM is an atmospheric theatre performance intended to surprise and delight audiences by transforming the canal into a stage, revealing the poetry and beauty of the mundane. The on-going improvisation illuminates Canal Convergence as a brand new experience at the Arizona Canal. Adorned in every color of the spectrum, performers playfully interact with audiences and the public space in and around the Scottsdale Waterfront creating a visual kaleidoscope.
As performers break out of the traditional theatre arena into a public space the audience becomes part of the performance, coming and going as they please and often intermingling with the performers. Using simple movements and gestures, performers draw a conceptual link between us and the use of the canal, creating a collective ritual of appreciation and recognition and establishing a new community tradition, which celebrates the Valley’s unique canal culture and history.
