A delightfully dreamy aerial arts and circus creation for wee ones that is also especially welcoming for children with sensory sensitivities. TWEET TWEET! is a contemporary circus duet performance experience that takes place in the round, meaning the audience completely surrounds the stage. This charming set features an enchanting tree apparatus with two nests and two wooden swings hanging from the branches. The performers Holly Treddenick and Lindsay Goodtimes move from the nests, up into the aerial tree canopy, through the rope tree trunk, and on the floor. A large forest floor carpet lies under the tree branches for the audience to sit and lie on. Seating is available.

Show running time: 25 minutes + 20-minute post-show ‘Stay + Play’

‘Stay + Play’ is a fun session allows parents, caregivers, and children to fully immerse themselves in the delightful TWEET TWEET! set. Try out the apparatus! Nestle your little one in a nest!

This Stay + Play experience is a wonderful activity to engage young curious minds, and the perfect opportunity to get some adorable photos!

About the Performers

Femme du Feu Creations (FdFC) is a not-for-profit organization with three primary missions: performance creation and education. Since its inception, Femmes du Feu Creations has been creating and presenting circus works, researching innovative ways to combine its contemporary dance and choreographic backgrounds with contemporary circus, with an ongoing vision for cross-discipline collaborations. FdFC creates performance work through collaboration with artists across disciplines, combining contemporary circus/dance with artistic curiosity, risk, and reflection.

Lindsay Goodtimes is a professional dancer, choreographer, and circus performer who has been entertaining audiences for the past two decades. After graduating from Toronto Dance Theatre in 1998, she spent many years performing and choreographing in the US, Canada and overseas. Her travels took her to Southeast Asia where Lindsay trained at a Thai fire school. It was there she was first introduced to the circus arts. Upon returning from her travels, she was filled with a great desire to incorporate fire arts in dance. She is the co-founder of Femme de Feu; she fronted the three-piece Toronto punk band “Five Hot Bitches” and is a founding member and performer in the highly energetic kids band Space Chums.

Holly Treddenick is an artist, osteopath (DOMP), entrepreneur, and mother of two. Holly is Artistic Director for Femmes du Feu Creations (established in 2003), a not-for-profit arts organization, and co-owner of The Bank Art House in Welland, Ontario. Originally from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Holly moved to Toronto in 1995 to study at The Professional Training Program School of Toronto Dance Theatre. Holly now works primarily in the circus sector as performer, creator, educator, and producer. Holly has toured and presented work across Canada and the USA for the past 22 years. Holly is an advocate for community development through arts engagement, and believes that art can inspire, education and catalyze transformation.
