Paper Playground by Foolish Operations

A playful and interactive dance performance where children are free to join in to explore and to move, draw and sign, because that’s what young ones do best!

Paper Playground is a stimulating experience set on a large paper carpet, created especially for children five and under that is full of dancing, drawing, projections and live music. Fully immersive, Paper Playground welcomes children as true creative collaborators and they become an essential part of the performance.
Exploring the theme of water with boats, fish, crabs and sharks, the artists offer irresistible invitations to roll like a wave, fill with air like a cloud and draw the ocean.

Recommended for ages: 18 mo – 4 years
