Baby Space is a multi-sensory installation designed for pre-walking babies. It is where contemporary dance, music and visual art meld together to form an immersive encounter with the arts. Babies will be encouraged to interact with the dancers and explore the installation in their own unique ways even after the performance is over.
Special arrangements can be made for toddlers with additional mobility needs (e.g. Global Development Delay, Cerebral Palsy).
Baby Space is created by Dalija Acin Thelander, an award-winning choreographer, theatre maker and cultural worker based in Stockholm, Sweden. Her work aspires to contribute to the notion of choreography as an expanded practice and focuses on the sensuous interrelationship of body, mind, and environment. She is involved in the research and creation of contemporary dance for babies and children and lectures on the importance of these early encounters with art.
She is the initiator and coordinator of the Generator, a collaborative platform that develop dance theatre for children in the Balkan region. She is also the co-founder and coordinator of Station Service for Contemporary Dance Belgrade and co-founder and co-curator of Kondenz, a festival for performing arts, in Belgrade, Serbia. She is also the co-founder of Nomad Dance Academy for which she initiates, curates and produces numerous programmes and productions.
