Cie sQueezz/ Anne-beth Schuurmans

Cie sQueezz is the platform of the curious dance theatre creators, Marie-
Rose Mayele and Anne-Beth Schuurmans. They make remarkable dance theatre and imaginative experience for the whole family.

“Through dance and music Anne-Beth takes the children on a trip. All the senses are stimulated and toddlers are challenged to use them. An experience not often experienced by little toddlers.”. 

– Sara Vesseur, programmer Theater Dakota –

Little Wonder

Little Wonder is a music and dance performance that walks through our own imagination for children from 2 years of age and their adult companions. A dance performance that puts small events into the spotlight. The music changes the performance space, the image invites the dance to move with the music in the performance space.

Anne-Beth Schuurmans (Breda, 1976) is a dancer and choreographer who makes quirky and accessible theatre for toddlers. She has already been successful with her earlier performances
 for toddlers; Veggie Garden (Moestuin, 2010) and Mountain (Berg, 2011), installation Cloud Landed. (Wolk Geland, 2012), Virtuoos (2012). Her work is visual and poetic and nature is her inspiration source.
In 2008 she founded a theatre-makers platform Cie sQueezz.
