Wait a Minute 1/2 - 5

From an assembly kit, a world unfolds. Snow-white objects fill the void. A small table, a stool, a door, a tiny piano. But wait a minute… is somebody here?

In a pristine landscape, two people disappear and reappear when the inevitable happens: they meet!

How to deal with somebody different? Someone whom you can’t even tell what type of creature it is? A human, a dog, a bird? Luckily, there’s no need to change each other.

Wait a minute … simply stick to being who you are.

As part of the European research project MAPPING, Gertien Bergstra and Femke Somerwil — two of the company’s original dancers — create a performance for children, 6 months and older. Accompanied by the wonderful piano music of Jeroen van Vliet, the unknown becomes familiar in this new environment; a world comes to life directly at eye level with the young audience.
