Over the winter months in 2016 I travelled a lot with the Sally Chance Dance Company performing our new work “Touch & Go”.

Touch and Go is an interactive performance game for 2-year olds with Sally Chance, Stephen Noonan, Felecia Hick, and me.

Touring last year I had a wonderful time, and feel excited about this show and how every time we perform it the children help create something different and unique with our set of masking tape!

Photo features backstage happy times at ArtPlay in Melbourne with the Sally Chance Dance Company, the world premier of “Touch & Go” in May 2016, followed by another season in the ‘Out of The Box’ festival in Brisbane in June.

*NEWS* 
THIS YEAR in 2017, Touch & Go will be showing in the DREAM BIG FESTIVAL, in ADELAIDE!
Spread the word to your friends with children aged 2 years 😀

I am honoured to be performing as live musician in the new work Sally Chance Dance called “Touch & Go” for children aged 2 years. The show is touring to Melbourne and Brisbane!

Calling all two-year old children and their adults!

From the team that brought the hugely popular This [Baby] Life and Nursery to past Out of the Box festivals comes a brand new performance work, Touch & Go – a dancing game of cause and effect, carefully created for this curious and hands-on age group.

Touch & Go is dedicated to the mighty two year old, inviting them to enter a special world with two friendly dancers, shapes, pathways and live music. Interspersed with playful enticements to become part of the performance, children are free to take part or observe, venture out or stay close, touch and go – just as they need to.

FURTHER INFORMATION

Touch & Go is an interactive dance theatre work with live music specifically made for 2-year-old children and their parents, grandparents and carers.

The work is performed by 3 performers in an interactive designed space which is alive and responsive.

The show is not suitable for children younger than 24 months or older than 36 months.

Each child must have a participating carer with them within the performance. If the child attends with two adults, one of the adults is designated “accompanying”, and is seated within the space to observe. The participating carer is involved with the child in the show in a series of relaxed and specific playful invitations.

Throughout the show, the performers request that participating carers support their child’s experience. This may involve sitting closely to their child as well as letting the child explore, discussing the show with the child, encouraging their attention and taking care of the child’s security within the performance space.

touch-and-go

As a live musician/performer, it’s been a wonderful time recently creating the new work “Touch & Go” with Sally Chance Dance Company. This show is especially for 2 year old children and their families. It’s a fun, playful, and clever performance game that will be setting off on tour this year to Melbourne’s Artplay June 1-4 [book here], and to Brisbane’s Out Of The Box Festival June 23-28 [book here]

Touch & Go invites children aged 24 months, nearly 3 or anything in between to take a breath and view a playful world of shapes and pathways, stepping stones and lines, with two friendly dancers and a live guitarist.

Playful enticements to become part of the performance themselves invite the children to take part or observe, venture out or stay close, touch and go – just as they need to.

From the team that brought This [Baby] Life and Nursery to ArtPlay, this company’s brand new performance work, Touch & Go, is a dancing game of cause and effect, carefully created to be alive and responsive to this powerful and hands-on age group – the mighty two-year old!
