An imaginary journey across the earth with music and dance

Watch, listen, smell and touch ….

[soliloquy id=”1852″]

Using sand, earth, stones and musical instruments a dancer and a musician create their own world full of colours and sounds. Dancing to slithers of music of different continents and using nature sounds, they bring the audience along on an imaginary journey across the earth.

Mappamondo is a musical and imaginative performance for children from 2 years up, where sounds of the earth are coming to life.

“The toddlers in the audience recognize themselves immediately in the movements of the dancer Leila Bakhtali. They say: “I can do this too!” Or “Oooh this I cannot do!”
Anita Twaalfhoven Theaterkrant Amsterdam September 2017

“A beautiful first theater experience for the very young. Inventive and impulsive. Short but powerful. Playful and lively. An adventure for the youngest.”
Willem Nijssen PZC Walcheren August 2017
