Polar Bear

A family friendly dance performance about hope for the future. Antarctica and the North Pole are melting and the ice is disappearing. Where will the polar bear live when the beautiful world of ice is no longer there? Sensory and corporal, a meaningful and personal journey for children and adults. 

A corporal journey in a bluish white landscape of ice, a place of beautiful animalistic fur-dancing. A sensory universe of electro-poetic sounds, northern lights and polar bears dancing.

A highly visual and relevant performance for children and adults where we stand together for hope.

Where do you think the polar bear will live in the future?
