Vind, blås mig!
In Vind, blås mig! you’ll meet love, magic and forces of nature.
One musician and three dancers guide the children on an interactive journey, portraying forceful characters and big emotions. The performance is loosely inspired by William Shakespeare’s The Tempest and is told through dance, song and poetry. The audience is taken out on the thunderous sea, into the mystic forest, to Caliban’s Garden and much more.
How does it work?
The audience is seated with the ensemble in a big circle. Everyone is invited to join in on movements, singing and dramatic moments. If anyone needs to leave the circle for a while that’s of course fine. A maximum of ten children plus accompanying adults per performance
Vind, blås mig! is part of Step Extended.
