Den Kosmiska Havsträdsgårdspassagen
Den Kosmiska Havsträdsgårdspassagen is an interactive, choreographed installation for the very young (2-18 months) by choreographer Peter Mills with dancer Rachel Tess. The performance leads the audience through constantly shifting and contrasting visual, tactile and auditory stimuli. Themed as an exploration of the unknown wonders of the underwater, cosmic, and botanical realms of nature we offer the audience a calm and safe space as they journey through the installation. While the performers welcome the young audience to the space initially, the performance is ultimately shaped by the interests of the audience. The baby’s freedom to move, observe, and interact with the installation and dancers, shapes the performance.
