HEAD DOWN - LEGS UP!
6 months +
This is a play about the daily tasks and adventures of a circus family: Daddy the Clown, Mommy the Sorceress and Bubu the Acrobat. Follow the exciting everyday life of this unusual family on the stage - from waking up in the morning, getting dressed, Bubu's first achievements, going to the kindergarten, playing games and acrobatics, to a good night's sleep. The play manages to capture different moods in a very expressive way and takes you through daily routines in a most unusual way.
The content, sound and imagery of the performance have been completely adapted to the psychological and physiological stages of development of infants and toddlers, with a child psychologist involved in the creation of the play. The show takes place in front of and in the space between the young spectators sitting on the floor, in a room together with the actresses. The show is interactive and encourages the little ones to participate.
