This week, we attended the performance, xhe, happening at the Esplanade Annexe Studio as part of the Da:ns Festival. 


Da:ans Festival: xhe

xhe, was an interesting experience for us as its not the usual kid's show or performance that we have been to.

When you enter the performance stage, the vibrant colors stands out, and next you will notice the various loose pieces scattered around. You and your LO will sit / stand / lie down on the stage, among the performers and play with the loose pieces around.

The dancers move in a trance like manner around the audience and its interesting to watch the deliberate movements and imagine the mindset that the dancer is in. The performance is also very interactive with many moving pieces and audience participation.

For the Kids

As the performers are not behaving in a usual adult manner, covering themselves with drapes and cushions, or spinning, crawling and rolling on the floor, the kids will be curious and have the puzzled and inquisitive look of "What is happening".

We expect most kids will divide their time exploring the many props lying around and staring curiously at the dancers. Throughout the performance, they will be encouraged to interact with the performance and use their imagination with the loose pieces.

While the performance may not appeal to everyone, we think its an interesting opportunity to engage creatively with the kids and to see their reactions in a "free play" space.

BYKidO Tip: Parts of the performance include sounds and movement from the dancers that may frighten younger kids. We encourage you to play and engage with the kids throughout the performance so as to be aware of such instances.
