Koro Koro (meaning something rolling in Japanese)is – after their play BB – a brand new performance for infants by Makiko Ito. This extraordinary interactive dance performance for the youngest children is a clown-like magical play full of music.
The dancers and musicians are walking around. They roll, slide, jump and surround you with sounds. Together they improvise to any of the movements and sounds the young audience might produce. A touching unique dialog between performers, babies and toddlers comes to life before your eyes.
