An interactive, multidisciplinary alphabet primer, “The 26 Letter Dance” is a journey into the world of letters and words. Physically and intellectually engaged in the piece, the young spectator is an active participant in this kaleidoscope rich in colours and textured dance.
In this bold and playful work, the choreographer Hélène Langevin invites children to take part in a unique experience where they not only see a dance performance but actively ‘participate’ in the various tableaux that punctuate the piece–loosely structured miniatures. The show gets underway with A of course, with Z the last to take his leave. In between, the letters in this alphabet book embody a plethora of words, meanings, emotions and tones of voice.
“The 26 Letter Dance” is a very contemporary and poetic piece that expands the frontiers of performance for young audiences and turns the conventions of theatre inside out.
