B Free
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, a renowned children dance performance group in Finland.

B Free refers both to the baby’s freedom and to be free. Without story structure, text or language, dancers use their body and live music to communicate with their young audience and to draw out movement from them. Moving to rhythm, toddlers become the performers. Parents are encouraged to respond to the music and dancers, to experience the work, the interactions and be free in the theatre with their little ones.
