BARBORA LÁTALOVÁ & COL.: ANIMAL CARNIVAL

An interactive dance performance for children and youth, based on the suite of the same name by French composer Camille Saint-Saens.

The performance combines movement and dance with video projections, original music, and sound, all accented by a play of light and shadow, of silence and stillness. The artists were inspired by the diversity of the animal kingdom: burrowing underground, taking flight, diving underwater and getting lost in the tall grass. Many new and unusual creatures were created and new beings emerge with each performance, thanks to the young audience, who is onstage from beginning to end. Come join us and plunge into the world of animal imagination!

This interactive performance is connected with a movement, music and visual arts workshop led by the artists. Children can try out movement and dance, learn about the animal kingdom, listen to music, create new music and sounds and engage in artistic reflection.

Animal Carnival received the Audience and Lighting Design Awards at 2014’s Czech Dance Platform.
