An interactive installation performance for Children 6mths-3yrs.

A door opens into an undiscovered world, and together the children and the two birds discover an unknown territory. They are two peculiar creatures, identical, like twins. Maybe human, maybe birds, maybe both. It is through their curious eyes we see this world unfold, flying through four seasons. There are no seats, and the audience are free to walk around the room, sit wherever they want, touch, and make their own discoveries.

Dance artists Annika Ostwald and Ida Uvaas invite the youngest children to actively explore a tactile, abstract universe created by scenographer and sculptor Carl Nilssen-Love, with a vivid sound-design by composer Jens L. Thomsen. Additionally we will hold 30min performances with time afterwards for further discovery of the room.
