How doeas the surrounding world looks like for a small child? Is it a round yellow or blue square? Or maybe green soft hollow?
Small children's knowledge of the world around them begins with a variety of geometric shapes (cube, sphere, cone) and colors (green, red, yellow, blue, orange). The various geometrical shapes and colors creators delis like a mosaic, it turns into children readable vegetables - carrot, tomato, cucumber, and sometimes beyond recognition, mushrooms, fruits, flowers. While traveling through the different stages of child development, dancers like children under one year will be creeping, crawling, like of the second year - flounder, go, flee, and the age of three - absconding or spin. This child\'s movement and the movement will be accompanied by specially created music for this performance, the choice of a high, simple in this age group acceptable sounds and their combinations.
There will be alternated watching the action and movement performance, knowing that the children can concentrate on just a few minutes.
This is an ideal show to bring younger children to – there are plenty of opportunities to get involved too, whether it be bouncing along in time to the performers and music, rolling coloured shapes across the room or at the end being invited to play with all of the ‘puzzle’ shapes. | four stars

The dance is as complex and sophisticated as any modern dance group and aside from one or two near misses between them the dancers are performing as if they had a Royal Performance for this is a show where the kid is King.
