Zuschauer*innen stehen um eine runde, leuchtende Bühne herum und halten sich an den Händen.

Accompany the dancers into various animals’ environments – deep below the soil, high up in the clouds, dive under water and get lost in the high grass. This interactive dance performance for children is based on French composer Camille Saint-Saëns’ original composition The Carnival of the Animals, and it combines movement and dance with video projection. Inspired by the animal kingdom’s diversity, the performers explore the enormous wealth of animal movement qualities. Part of the performance lies in the encouragement of the young audience to participate in short performance sequences.

Duration: 65 min.
