Flotante is a sensory installation for babies and toddlers, featuring hanging puppets and original music. Children are invited to immerse themselves into a new universe of beauty and fiction.
Ferns, moss and fog dominate the scene creating a magic atmosphere. Sea creatures and bright stars live side by side, inviting us to contemplate a wider sense of existence. Set to a field where balloons float at different heights and move throughout the space, children will play around while the performer will interact with them. Surrounded by sounds, floating puppets and colours, Flotante, where everything that happens is up in the air, stimulates children’s imagination and perceptions to new forms of beauty.
Company Flotante creates extraordinary sensitive experiences and focuses mainly on the transformation of the playing space, the deep exploration of materials and the intertwining of artistic disciplines, allowing audience to travel to new universes.
