A dance performance for everyone aged 3 and up |

tout petit (Belgium) |

light! is a performance in which the light is dancing. Tiny lights and big spots traverse the stage. The light dances in rounds and the performers follow suit. During licht! the audience will discover a world of nuances in light, like the gloom of a torch and the bright light of a larger spot.
At the centre is a play of action and reaction. The movement patterns follow two central motives: The dancers move because of the other or because of the light. Gradually this relationship is turned around and the light and the lamps move because the dancers move. At the end of the performance the audience is invited to join in with experimenting with light and shadow themselves.

tout petit was founded in 2012 by dancers/choreographers Ciska Vanhoyland and Lies Cuyvers. tout petit creates dance performances for everyone over the age of 3. tout petit opts for very physical contemporary dance which arises from a theatrical theme. Movement patterns take shape from a clear intention. Once the intention is firmly established, forms are varied and played with. In recent years, the company has been seen at festivals and guest performances, especially in the Benelux region.
