Big boat, small boat, together, alone, taking care of one another, listening to the waves, bobbing on the waves. This interactive performance for babies and their parents is like a warm breeze by the beach.
Floating Boat is based on a poem by dramaturge Haejin Lee. The poem is a metaphoric description of the mother-baby connection before, during and after the birth.
The performance is a co-production of Dance Theatre Auraco and Little Tree Theatre. It premiered in Seoul, South Korea on November 30th 2013.
