Paper Playground is a playful and interactive dance performance where children are free to join in and explore, because that’s what young ones do best! Paper Playground is a stimulating experience created especially for children five and under that is full of dancing, drawing, music and projections. Through the exploration of creative movement, Paper Playground welcomes children as true creative collaborators. Vancouver-based choreographer Julie Lebel, and her Foolish Operations Ensemble/Dancing the Parenting project, create community engaged dances with and for babies, toddlers, children and their caregivers. This unique opportunity to share a special moment of discovery with your child is not to be missed.
Paper Playground proudly premieres at the Surrey International Children Festival: thank you kids’ fest for sparking the whole idea and helping to make this work for the very young possible. We greatly appreciate your support.
