Think your little one is just a little too little for the Kids Fest? Not so! This year’s Vancouver International Children’s Festival, which hits stages all around Granville Island from May 27 – June 2nd, is especially baby and tot friendly.
Parents with babies, crawlers and toddlers will love the much raved about Paper Playground, a unique show created just for the 3 and under crowd. It’s a rare opportunity for the littlest of littles to experience live theatre created just for them and be a part of the action too.
Paper Playground, a playful and beautiful exploration of childhood
A joyous and stimulating experience for the youngest of audiences, Paper Playground is a playful and interactive dance performance where children, ages 0-3 are free to join in and explore, because that’s what young ones do best!
Paper Playground is a celebration of and a tribute to the art and the beauty of childhood.~Astrid Pedneault
Set on a large paper carpet, children are encouraged to explore the theme of water with the moving performers. Dance, drawings, live music and projections are used to create a magical world where boats, fishes, crabs and sharks merrily come alive. Share a special moment with your little one in a world filled with play, exploration and discovery
No one present in the room could remain immune to the beauty and emotion generated by the experience.~Astrid Pedneault
