Up Side Down is an interactive dance performance (for children 4 - 7) which proposes to our youngest audience an involving and interactive experience of contemporary dance and visual arts. It invites children into a shared adventure, which they can spectate, activate and influence. A perceptual and kinesthetic journey constituted of a variety of stimuli, engendering first hand, direct experience which heightens awareness of perception as embodied and interdependent with its surroundings. The performance setting affirms the minimalistic aesthetics, endorses imagination and values the simplicity and inspiration found in the every day objects and actions. The project's priority is to enable frequent accessibility for children and therefore it will be produced in several countries, by partners who share this vision.
Up Side Down aspires to challenge the concepts of performing arts for children and to promote the importance of artistic experiences in early years, in the context of both artistic and social experience.
