Artist: Alfredo Zinola and Felipe Gonzalez
Presented by Melbourne Festival and ArtPlay
Imagination and wonder take centre stage in PRIMO, an underwater spectacle created especially for the creative minds of 2 to 5 year olds. From the depths of an aquatic dreamscape PRIMO conjures a vivid sensory journey, letting the creative power of your toddler’s imagination build a worlds of his or her own devising.
In a bright lit, clear-sided pool, two dancers jump, twirl and float their arms and legs a whirl of bubbles and colour. Pressing their faces to the windows, the young audience will find themselves transported, carried away on strange tides into a world of underwater adventures.
PRIMO is a co-production with SCHAUBUDE BERLIN, fabric Postdam, Fondazione T. r.g., Barnes Crossing. PRIMO is supported by Kunststiftung NRW, Fonds Darstellende Kunste e.V. and Small size, big citizens. The company’s travel to Melbourne has been made possible thanks to Kunststiftung NRW.
