SIXTH DAY OF THE MOON/MÅNENS SJÄTTE DAG
Age: 3-15 months
A choreographed installation for babies 3-15 months, which explores the possibilities of an event-world rather than an object world - something dynamic and relatively unpredictable. It aims at diverse sensory experiences and a heightened sensitivity towards the immediate physicality of the world by interlacing movement, dance, music, visual art and light design. The performance invites its audience to engage in playful and open-ended experience that does not present concrete goals but rather expects them to explore and discover a new form of being-in-the-world. The audience is invited to enjoy the installation upon their personal needs - to arrive at the time which suits them the best and stay as long as they like to, within the 2 hours running time.
Choreography: Dalija Aćin Thelander
