Memory Wax creates dance performances for children and youths and develops workshops with dance and movement as the main ways of expression. In the meeting with children at pre-schools and schools, we want to create a dialogue around the body and fantasy. Our long experience shows that dance strengthens children and young people’s individual development, sense of self and body consciousness. By putting the body language in focus through different collaborative exercises, we create opportunities that in a democratic way bridge prejudice and de-dramatize gender roles.
Here are some suggestions of what we can do together:
• visit us at Barnens scen to see a dance performance, accompanied by our teacher guidance pamphlets that give you further ideas and work materials for further work before and after the show
• combine a show with workshops in which the children themselves get to try out dance and movement that places focus on collaborative exercises, body language, emotional expression and community
• tailor workshops together and work with movement and dance regarding current topics at school, like bullying, the environment, friendship etc.
Shows on the repertoire for autumn 2020:
Claroscuro for children aged 3-6 years
ABC for children aged 5-8 years
