Kl. 15:00 – 16:30
The Complexity of Simplicity – a conversation about creating performances or creative experiences for the very young
Since 2006, Starcatchers has produced over 40 productions and over 40 community engagement projects. Working with dozens of artists from across artforms we have explored different approaches to creating engaging experiences for babies, toddlers and young children and their parents and carers. Sharing a range of examples from this repertoire of work will be a starting point for a discussion about how artists can develop their practice in this field and why this work is not always as simple as it appears.
