We lie on the stage in a star formation around a peculiar, oversized cylinder, gazing up at the sky. A huge mirror suspended from the ceiling allows us to glimpse the dancers within the cylinder. In sync with a rhythm, body parts create mesmerising shapes akin to the vibrant patterns of a kaleidoscope: symmetrical, fluid, enigmatic and forever-evolving. MIRKIDS is the latest visually captivating dance production crafted for young audiences by the Vevey-based choreographer Jasmine Morand. A fascinating, hypnotic visual spectacle that captivates both young and old alike, inviting them to marvel at and to immerse themselves fully in the performance. 

Duration: 45 minutes
Age recommendation: 6+  years.
