RAPID CITY, S.D. -

Flutter Productions is hosting a show called "CHROMA." Performers will put on a unique show, including a real-time painting experience.

The production company is an entity of Black Hills Works, and their mission is to create a new community in which performers - with or without disabilities - can come together and create works that celebrate the human spirit.

“Our entire show is about a child who lives in complete white,” said Assistant Director Kameron Nelson. “His mother, being very supportive and protective, finally gives him permission to venture out into a world of color.”

CHROMA will be held at Founders Park on July 8. Performers will tell the story of an individual in search of their creative voice, while painting a 24-by-36 foot canvas. This will include a choreographed performance to composed music.

“Our whole cast will actually be painting with their hands and legs,” Nelson said. “We have attachments that hook to wheelchairs, so it will be a live and real-time painting experience.”

It may be challenging to paint and dance simultaneously, but the cast and crew are well prepared to make this a one-of-a-kind experience.

“A lot of the choreography is customized and created just for the individuals in the show,” said Choreographer Sara Olivier. “It’s going to be a lot of fun, and the space is unique because we are going to have the audience all around us.”

Showtime starts at 6 p.m. at Founders Park. Attendees can also enjoy a social hour prior to the performance. For further details, dance away to Flutter Productions’ website.
