Audiopollen is special pollen. Just like the pollen of flowers, it travels in the air. Once it reaches a person’s ear it sprouts into a series of images. You can follow it in a special capsule designed to be used by all our youngest viewers.
Audiopyłki is an innovative project created by the Children’s Art Centre in Poznań, aimed at encouraging children aged from four to six years to perceive music theatrically. It is a voyage across spaces within nature and the human body; a special journey focusing not on the visible but on the audible only. It is like a research expedition taking part in an especially designed vehicle of light and sound. The role of this mysterious device is to prepare the children for and make them open to contact with the unknown, to stimulate their imagination and to activate a series of associations leading to the construction of their own plots. Audiopyłki is an artistic experiment, an attempt to search for children’s yet undiscovered areas of aesthetic and intellectual sensitivity. Both its premiere and the subsequent visits of preschool children from Poznań in the cosmic capsule have been extremely successful.
Audiopyłki is an audio play combined with an expedition to a world where stories tell themselves without words – using only sound and light. It is the first attempt by Old Brewery New Dance for Children to open the youngest audience to an installation merging various fields of visual arts. As always, we are interested in the sphere of children’s poly-sensory experience and in developing their creativity. This time, however, they will only be dancing in their imagination stimulated by the Audiopollen sounds and images swirling around in their heads.
The voyage includes:
- A warm-up
- Listening to an expedition journal (6 minutes)
- Preparation for the voyage/putting on special suits
- A journey in the Audiopollen Capsule
- Sonorous integration
