The Macao Cultural Centre, under the auspices of the Cultural Affairs Bureau, is launching a new edition of “ARTmusing Summer”, a string of imaginative activities, performances and screenings specifically curated for a vast range of audiences. From babies and families to youth and seniors, this year’s series brings entertaining ideas for all.
Little tots are invited to explore Baby Space, a multi-sensory performance conceived for pre-walking babies and their caretakers. Melding contemporary dance, sound and visual art, the performance immerses the tiny audience in a pulsating artistic atmosphere. Produced and staged by Shanghai’s Art Space for Kids, this installation like show encourages the audience to interact with two dancers, triggering the senses and stimulating perception. Unveiling a sequence of soothing choreographed movement and dance textures, the performance is set on a soft and relaxing atmosphere. Staged to the sound of original music, Baby Space focuses on the kids’ sensorial interrelationship between body, mind, and environment.
