Baby Space is a unique installation offering infants and their parents an extraordinary sensory, artistic and interpersonal experience. It is a space that stimulates all the senses and makes everyone feel safe and free.
The interdisciplinary project combines multimedia, animation, dance, music, theatre and words. The premise which Dalija Aćin Thelander, a Serbian choreographer living in Sweden, based her concept on was the inviting of local artists: dancers, musicians, actors, filmmakers, singers, stage designers etc. to work together on the creating of a space that children would find both friendly and stimulating. Stary Browar is the second venue in the world in which this exceptional space will be created with the contribution of some very interesting artists who also work in the field of art for children.
Baby Space works in two ways: as an interactive installation and as a dance performance inside the installation.
The installation space is clearly separated from the surroundings and comprises three areas of sensing: an area of tactile sensations – the installation interior is made of soft and resilient material that is pleasant and smooth to touch an area of auditory sensations – the music is abstract in nature and provides a backdrop for the sensory experience; but it can also be a guide within the space, just like the words which emerge with the sounds – resonant words filled with mysterious meanings and an area of visual sensations – short films and visualisations that enter as smudges of colour into the immaculately white space; this area also extends to movement when, during the performances, the dancers appear
Dalija Aćin Thelander works within the performing arts field as a choreographer, theatre maker and cultural worker.
She presented her works internationally on numerous festivals such as Impulstanz, Tanz im August, Les Particules, Perforations, BITEF etc. In 2008 she received Prix Jardin d’Europe for the performance “Handle with great care” on 8:tension, Impulstanz Festival, Vienna.
Her current work aspires to contribute to the notion of choreography as expanded practice and focuses on the participatory role of the audience.
Since 2008 she is involved in intensive explorations in the field of contemporary dance for children and babies. She created several dance performances for children and babies as well as a choreographed installation for babies “Baby Space” which has been produced so far in Serbia, Poland and Denmark.
She is co-founder and artistic coordinator of Station Service for Contemporary Dance Belgrade, co-founder of Nomad Dance Academy for which she initiated, curated and produced numerous programs and productions. She is a co-founder and co-curator of Kondenz festival for performing arts in Belgrade.
She collaborated with numerous theatre directors and won several awards for choreography for drama theatre.
As a free lance artist she lives in Stockholm, Sweden since 2012.
