Event Details

As part of Palaver Strings and Noisefloor Incubation Residency at Mechanics’ Hall, join little house for an all-levels movement class! This gentle movement class will draw on elements of little house’s creative process through the engagement of your sensory system. You’ll be invited to create warmth in your body through gentle movement, improvisation, visualization, and self-care. Absolutely no dance experience required, all are welcome to attend.

Tickets for this experience are offered on a pay-what-you-can basis, with a suggested amount of $10-30. Your generous of our artists and programming above and beyond this amount is welcomed and deeply appreciated.

little house dance incubation residency for Noisefloor with Palaver Strings & Mechanics’ Hall

Noisefloor plays with the subjectivity of human experience, including visual and auditory perception and the logic of dreams. Musicians and dancers will move throughout the stage and surrounding areas, expanding the audience’s audiovisual field and guiding their attention through the use of mobile light sources attached to their bodies. Noisefloor is an immersive physical, visual, and musical experience. After the incubation residency at Mechanics’ Hall, Noisefloor will premiere at the State Theatre December 6 + 7.


little house dance is an artist-led contemporary dance company based in Portland, Maine on traditional Wabnaki land. Founded by Heather Stewart in 2020, little house dance’s current mission is to build an artistic platform based in practices of partnership, equity, good working conditions, ideation and collaboration, and mindfulness of craft. As dance is inherently a social art, our company’s work forges new community connections and partnerships in dance programming and production in regional and national spheres. We seek to build mindful working partnerships with venues, presenters, audiences, patrons, and production, particularly in Maine. Our aim is to create meaningful and deeply physical dance experiences with the people around us.
