Description:

The Playground is an innovative, interactive, site-specific, dance performance for children. An ordinary playground becomes the place of an unusual dance adventure when two dancers in red skirts introduce dance and movement in children's play and make choreographic choices based on the surroundings and relationships that arise. The playground focuses on giving the children an artistic experience where they are co-creating. The performance is build on inclusiveness and warmth, and all children are seen and integrated in a natural and safe way.

The performance was developed in Frankfurt as a research of Annasara Yderstedt (SWE) and Annika Keidel (GER), two participants in Next Generation Workspace, connected to Starke Stücke Festival, and was premiered at Starke Stücke in 2017. Further the piece has been shown at Festival Franje (NOR), Stockholm Fringe Festival (SWE), Eju meklēt! (LVA) and Joint Dance Congress Panpapanpalya (AUS). 

 

The piece is based on improvisation and will be different every time. The experience is filled with admiration, playfulness, curiosity and giggling laughter among the children. The spectators have been touched by the interaction between the children and the dancers. After the dancers have left the playground the performance often continues like an echo of what has happened. The children continue to play, dance and explore the playground and repeat some of the episodes of the performance as well as telling people around them about their experience.

The Playground är en innovativ, interaktiv, site-specific, dansföreställning för barn. En helt vanlig lekplats blir platsen för ett ovanligt dansäventyr när två dansare i röda tyllkjolar introducerar dans och rörelse i barnens lek och gör koreografiska val baserade på omgivningarna och relationerna som uppstår. The Playground vill ge barnen en kvalitativ konstnärlig upplevelse där de själva är medskapande. Föreställningen är inkluderande och varm, och alla barn på lekplatsen blir sedda och integrerade på ett naturligt och tryggt sätt.

The Playground on innovatiivinen, interaktiivinen, paikkasidonnainen tanssiesitys lapsille. Tuikitavallinen leikkipaikka muuttuu epätavalliseksi seikkailuksi. Kaksi tanssijaa punaisissa tyllihameissaan yhdistää tanssin ja liikkeen lasten leikkiin ja rakentaa koreografiansa paikan ja suhteiden mukaan. The Playground haluaa antaa lapsille laadukkaan taiteellisen elämyksen, missä he itse pääsevät luomaan tapahtumaa. Esitys on osallistavan lämmin ja kaikki leikkipaikan lapset huomioidaan ja otetaan mukaan luonnollisella ja turvallisella tavalla.
