Guided by two dancers, children and adults explore a poetic, sensuous and safe space where we wonder about the magical universe and atmosphere of the moon. The performance offers the possibility of listening, sensing and moving together, and everything is based on the children’s premises.

The children’s senses are wakened by dance, objects and music, and the performance offers space to each child’s sensing of the dancing and playing universe of ‘The Moon’. Children and adults are welcome to moving freely and exploring the space as we go along.
