60 minute piece for 4 dancers, no intermission
Inside Kid is a fantastical, physically dense piece that was created to remind us to connect with our own inner child. Universally, we all embody a child spirit within us who desires to express individual curiosity, playfulness, and sense of wonder. As we become older we become distracted and numb to our authentic youth, and we inadvertently hide our true colors staying trapped in cocoons. This piece’s purpose is to ignite our imaginations and turn on our listening to the kid inside us who is ready to play, ready to connect, and ready to participate in a curious creative world.
Inside Kid is a part of the AECID Catalog of Spain, 2020
