A colourful dance piece by Lithuania’s Dansema Dance Theatre, Puzzle is sure to light the fuse of our infants’ imagination. Exploring a delightful world of familiar forms, from geometric shapes to fruits, vegetables and flowers, the performers will dance, bounce and move in their vibrant costumes. An unforgettable first-time experience for both inquisitive babies and their new adventurous parents.

Young kids will wander through a magical place full of touching memories, from toys and old text books to cassette recorders and games, living through their parents’ nostalgic yesteryears. Echoes of our Childhood merges dance, sound effects and installation, offering the whole family something closer to a real life adventure rather than a dance theatre play. Responding to beeps and noises, dancers will move among the audience, mesmerised by the ‘antique’ artefacts.
