The Thing That Matters
Love, hope, family... time.
While the arts and creativity have an impact on child development, the young child's time is always now;
Not just because their first thousand days create long term cognitive and emotional patterns, but because from birth they have plenty to say about the things that matter to them.
The Thing That Matters is for and with children aged three years and younger. The work evolved through the company's Family Dance Lab approach to devising and co-creating Dance Theatre for Early Years, bringing professional artists and families together.
In collaboration with an ensemble of Adelaide-based families with young children, the company has created a rolling, crawling, walking, running, dancing journey through an entire lifespan, for audiences of children aged four months to three years, and their adults.
