A thought-provoking performance for toddlers.
What do we look like? Where do we look? What do we see? These are some of the questions La Petita Malumaluga poses in My Baby Is a Queen. The Spanish ensemble has created a performance for babies and young children that explores differences and similarities between people and how we perceive those who are different from ourselves.
The audience plays the leading part in this performance, where the children are invited to participate in the goings-on at the stage. By use of dancing figures, reflections in mirrors, and invisible musicians, the ensemble invites big and small on a journey of reflection on those we see and how we see them. The imagery and movements are ideal for children aged 0–3.
The La Petita Malumaluga dancers and musicians have specialized in performances for young children. They last visited Bergen International Festival in 2017 with Beatles for Babies, where the little ones got to move freely about on the stage to the soundtrack of classic Beatles songs.
