DESCRIPTION OF THE PERFORMANCE:
An extraordinary interactive dance and music experience for the youngest children. In a clown-like magical play full of music the dancers and the musicians improvise together and are walking around. They roll, slide, jump and surround the audience with sounds. Together they improvise to any of the movements and sounds the young audience might produce. A touching unique dialog between performers, babies and toddlers comes to life before your eyes.
