Choreographical Practice for Babies - Interrelational Ecology and Immersion

Ms Dalija Acin Thelander

Context of Discussion: Babies

Explore key principles which underpin choreographer/theatre maker Dalija’s choreographic practice for babies. Grounded in sensorial-perceptual viewpoints and the latest developmental scientific research on infants, the workshop will challenge preconceptions you might have about the creative process, aesthetics and performativity of the performing arts for the youngest of audiences.
