Stand facing the mirror I’m just ahead of me,
This reflection is it really me or another me?
Yet it’s quite like me, it moves all the same,
well almost …

Unless it’s you, right in front of me!
And if so, would you like to play with me?

Dance, object manipulation and rhythm are at the heart of this piece, which will use fun visual effects produced by mirrors and reflections as well as gestures and sounds to create a fun and intriguing dance work. This show for a very young audience is attractive visually and musically, but also playful. At this time of childhood the first discoveries are explorations of instinctiveness, toughness, curiousity, vitality, awkwardness, and wonder. While they are starting to identify themselves they realise their multiplicity as well as the other.

What is this body that I made? How does it move? By part? Together…

« Geminus » was born and has been developping within the framework « Dansce Dialogue 2″ project. A first step was the participation of the 2 choreographers to a artists salon, in Brighton in March 2013. Then, at the invitation of the South East Dance, The company went to Eastleigh- The Point- for 8 days in order to research and set up some matters for an early years performance. At the end of the week , the project was selected to be produced and toured.
