The Painted Garden is an exceptional interactive dance and multimedia show in which children are invited to accompany dancers in the world on stage, a world filled with sensors that respond to movement and sound. Spontaneous and filled with surprising twists the show is a memorable adventure for children where they are not only able to observe the story of the wonderful garden but also to experience it with their bodies. New interactive and multimedia technology makes it possible to record every movement on stage in the form of images and sounds. The Italian company skilfully creates visually amazing worlds which provide children with an opportunity to fully participate in the creative process.
TPO is a very popular and internationally renowned dance group for children. Their shows have been staged all over the world but have not, to date, reached Poznań. This is, therefore, a unique opportunity for children to encounter the brilliant dancers and multimedia artists and to experience the world through dancing and interactive games.
The workshops are a chance to enter even more deeply into the multimedia world created during the show. Children will work with the artists and become familiar with the secrets of the magical multimedia carpet, the main feature of most of TPO’s performances. The workshops are movement-focused and avail of an interactive installation that interacts with children.
