A movement and object-based performance for audiences aged 4 and up.
Our Earth is full of worlds within worlds. Each of these microworlds lives its own unique life. Through micro-movements, body landscapes and a play with small objects, the performance draws our attention to the little things that are often hiding in plain sight.
This playful and poetic performance explores the fragility of our existence.
The creative team includes established Czech and Slovak artists from the fields of contemporary dance, the visual arts, puppet theatre and music, all of whom have extensive experience in creative work with children. Microworlds offers viewers an open, creative space where everyone and everything has a necessary and important role to play and possesses a unique potential to develop and create shared microworlds with others.
The production also draws children’s attention to small things and the details that surround them, which softens their perception, trains their attention and concentration and teaches them to play with minimal resources.
Thanks to the collaboration of Slovak and Czech artists from several industries, a unique and poetic production has emerged, with a tendency to charm adults, as well as young audiences.
