Join us outdoors for a moment of delicious dancing and music, with movement, juggling and a yellow companion in Claire Parsons Co’s new production YELLOW.

YELLOW is an outdoor performance suitable for open spaces and public spaces, a park or a museum. YELLOW suits audiences from 3 and up.

“Three dancers show up at a place close to you. A yellow ball rolls across your space. A cone stands next door, red clubs fly by and a yellow companion appears.”

Claire Parsons performance LITTLE SWAN LAKE was created in 2018 and commissioned by The Royal Dramatic Theater in Stockholm (SE). Instead of the gracious swans, we might be expecting from this classical ballet, some other figures appear on stage, ready to spread their wings, dance on a silver lake and find the right steps for birds in formation. LITTLE SWAN LAKE is a highly wilful take for young audiences, a dance and circus performance about performing in Swan Lake in a new version.

LITTLE SWAN LAKE is available for touring fall 2021 and onwards. From 4 years and up/family audiences.

The company’s signature work MARMALADE (for audiences from 2 years) is a delicate, sensory and tactile piece about meeting and mixing, sensing and seeing. MARMALADE has performed over 350 shows in Sweden and internationally, including De Betovering Festival in Holland, Festival d’Hiver Domaine D’O in France, Kids Festival in Italy, Summer Stage in New York and Act3 Festival in Singapore.

In a blue room with a black reflecting floor and Greek statues two figures appear. Or – are they three? They join forces and travel in parallell realities and experience overwhelming feelings and willfulness. SOON SWOON is dance, juggling and mime in an immersive experience for all from 9 years and up.

Five performers move together with the audience in an exploration of self and togetherness, in suggestive images and materialistic sounds. For family audiences.
