Come and experience the wonderful world of circus together with your little one for the first time. BE KIND is an intimate experience for babies from 6 to 18 months. In this sensory performance of sound, colour and movement, children experience acrobatics and juggling up close. The pop-up set slowly comes to life, and there is always something that rattles, appears, cracks, rolls, or floats. After the performance, the artists invite the little ones to explore the stage together. Be kind even comes complete with a specially designed baby book.
Be kind is the directorial debut of Emilie Weisse for TENT house for contemporary circus in co-production with 2turvenhoog festival. To discover how to interest, surprise and involve such a young audience in circus, Emilie cooperated with the Baby & Child Research Center in Nijmegen, who provided scientific insights on infant development. Be kind also offers a specially designed baby book with which the discovery of circus and play can continue at home.
The performance lasts 30 minutes, after which children can ‘play after’ for 10 minutes.
During the performance, the little ones are free to choose whether or not to participate. After the performance, the artists invite them to discover the playing field together. They can crawl in, out, along and through the set to explore the special materials up close. The spontaneous moments that result make each performance slightly different.
