About World Without Eyes (for babies)
Details constitute the whole, contrasts form dynamics, movements lead to dance. This is how babies learn and perceive life. Interactive dance performance for babies “Unseen world” is full of various movements, colours and surfaces that awakens the senses of babies and enhance their abilities to notice details. The performance invites the baby audience to become active participants and explore the world around them through movement together with two dancers, Giedre Subotinaite (Vilnius) and Cosmin Manolescu (Bucharest).
