Baby Space (April 2019)
Baby Space is a multi-sensory installation designed for pre-walking babies. It is where contemporary dance, music and visual arts meld together to form an immersive encounter with the arts. Babies will be encouraged to interact with the dancers and explore the installation in their own unique ways even after the performance is over.
Special arrangements can be made for toddlers with additional mobility needs (e.g. Global Development Delay, Cerebral Palsy). Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for requests/inquiries.
Baby Space was first conceived by Swedish choreographer Dalija Acin Thelander.
