Sorry, you missed this event, SIGN UP to get information on our forthcoming shows

light! is a captivating wordless dance performance that plays with the movement of light. 

Tiny lights and big spots traverse the stage. The light dances in rounds and the performers follow suit. During light! you’ll discover a world of nuances in light, like the gloom of a torch and the bright light of a larger spot. Each radiating a different atmosphere. The performance teases your senses and imagination. Sparking wonder in young children and adults alike.

At the end of the performance the audience is invited to join in with experimenting with light and shadow themselves.

About tout petit
tout petit makes dance performances for everyone from 3 years up. The creations are accessible, but not obvious. Both abstract and figurative. Authenticity and spirited dance are paramount.

Ciska Vanhoyland and Lies Cuyvers made four strong dance performances for young audiences: Kom mee, Leon!Schots en scheef, light! and loud. The performances light! and loud together constitute a diptych. Both pieces start from two elements which are almost always present in a dance performance, but which are rarely highlighted: light and sound.
