AND FELIPE GONZÁLEZ
For ages 2–5
PRESENTED BY Melbourne Festival and ArtPlayImagination and wonder take centrestage in PRIMO, an underwater spectacle created especially for the creative minds of 2–5 year olds.
From the depths of an aquatic dreamscape PRIMO conjures a vivid sensory journey, letting the creative power of your toddler’s imagination build a world of his or her own devising.
In a brightly lit, clear-sided pool, two dancers jump, twirl and float, their arms and legs a whirl of bubbles and colour. Pressing their faces to the windows, the pint-sized audience will find themselves transported, carried away on strange tides into a world of underwater adventures.
ARTIST TALK – FREE
