ARMS AND LEGS – and something in between
A humorous dance performance about and by the body
– for children and their grown-ups
Two men with two bodies travel full of astonishment, humour and seriousness into a universe where everything is in transformation. A universe made by the body. A place where the voice becomes music and where arms and legs become everything we did not think they were.
Children between 9 and 12 years of age begin being modest about their bodies. They start having too big feet, too long arms or bulging breasts. Maybe one’s body looks like the friends’ bodies. Maybe it does not. But it is growing – and what it is going to be in the end? The body is full of questions and taboos. All in all, the body is something peculiar.
There is something between arms and legs. What is it?
The target group is children between 9 and 12 years of age.
Children accompanied by adults should be at least 6 years old.
