by Räserbyrån

Two dancers take the audience on an experiential journey into a universe of sound and movement. The babies are part of this interactive performance, enjoying all the possibilities of exploring a world made of paper where everything can be tested, tasted and crumpled!

We explore together with the children and also dance for them. The babies are invited to take part in the exploration of movement and rustle with the guidance of the two dancers. The parents share the experience and are encouraged to let their little ones go off exploring on their own.



Räserbyrån is a dance collective established in 1997, based in Stockholm, Sweden. It evolved from a vision of a different way of creating movement based performances where the democratic process and the need to question accepted norms have been guiding stars.

In 2008 they choreographed their first performance for children. Since then three more shows for young audiences have been created. “Communication” and “participation” are their key words when setting up the conditions for works for children. Improvisation and relating to the unforeseen is used as tools; when meeting the audience the performances come to life.
