Dublin Dance Festival and The Ark present a family show for ages 7+. Irish Premiere | Switzerland
This magical children’s show explores how images can conjure vivid emotions, sensations and experiences.
Taking the audience on a fantastical voyage, two brothers dive into dreamlike adventures: a contortionist’s escape from a spider’s web; a journey in a damaged flying machine; and underwater encounters with fabulous aquatic creatures.
The unique set design creates a playful game of appearance and disappearance. As light is painted across the stage to reveal everything it touches, the dancers’ bodies seem to emerge from a black hole before being swallowed up again. These visual mysteries cast a spell, suspending our disbelief and unleashing our imagination.
"The temporary suspension of the laws of physics enthrals little ones and grownups... and shows us the impossible." - L’Atelier Critique
