TUTU

 

Magic lanterns, dance, gramophone and live music all blend together

into this mesmerizing family show. 6+

 

With this magic lantern performance Lichtbende carries you back a hundred years to the interbellum, or the period between the First and Second World Wars.

TUTU is primarily a feast for the eyes and ears. With her red shoes, a young girl dances in all the styles from that period, from tango to tap dance, from vaudeville to ballroom, from classical to Bauhaus ballet. Spectators follow her joys and sorrows in a time of fundamental change. The dance, shaped in that period by the pursuit of individual freedom, rising technology and interest in other cultures, reflects her life.

Lichtbende sweeps you away in a wonderful, rhythmical tale of dance, using magic lanterns projected on a giant screen. The projection images are created by manual and mechanical manipulation of everyday objects and materials and express a disarming lust for exploration. The players, two for the projectors and two for the music, stand in front of the screen with their projectors, magic lanterns and instruments so your can hear and see everything they do. Not to be missed!

TUTU is a non verbal family show. 50 min. 6+
