Interactive Dance Performance for Babies (for ages 2.5 and under)
B Free is the result of a three-year collaboration between CCDC Dance Centre and Dance Theatre Auraco.
B Free refers both to the baby’s freedom and being free. Without a story, text or language, dancers use movement and live music to communicate with the young audience, motivate them to move to the rhythm, and let them become performers. Parents are encouraged to interact with the music and their little ones, immerse themselves in the environment and enjoy the freedom of the performing arts.
Performances as part of International Arts Carnival 2018 in Hong Kong.
Co-presented and co-produced by CCDC Dance Centre and Dance Theatre Auraco.
Background of the performance
The collaboration between CCDC Dance Centre (CCDCDC) and Auraco began when Auraco performed Me-Me and gave a workshop at CCDCDC’s children’s festival in 2015. CCDCDC invited Auraco’s choreographer Päivi Aura and dancer Kati Lehtola to work with local artists in Hong Kong in 2016. After the residence of 2016, a work-in-progress performance was showcased. Now in August 2018, Päivi and Kati return to Hong Kong and B Free will be finished and presented at the International Arts Carnival. B Free is the first dance performance designed for toddlers under 2.5 years old in Hong Kong.
