“When the world changes suddenly and nothing is predictable, do you stay lost or do you go exploring? Little by Little Field is an outdoor dance inspired by climbing a tree, magical maps and making choices together. Entering new worlds through a fragile threshold – what will you find there?
Join us on a journey of discovery as our intrepid explorers bring this world to life and try to make sense (and make use) of all that they find there. Perhaps you can help them! Step by step, little by little, we invite family audiences to explore, to celebrate, to dream and to dance together. Little by Little Field will take place several times throughout the day.”
Both set & costume designers devised with the dancers to create characters gathering pieces of clothing and objects as they travelled through imaginary worlds. Deconstructed and reconstructed old stock and 2nd hand materials constitute the look.
Little by Little Field premiered as part of Edinburgh International Children’s Festival 2021 at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh on 29-30 May & 5-6 June.
