A sensory performance installation for the very young
We are lost in the scratchy, tickly, chortling grass; we have shrunk, and we have been admitted into the world that usually does no more than tickle our feet on a hot summer’s day. Grassgreen is a chance to discover the endless wonders and opportunities concealed amidst the wafting grass as a quick-witted dancer and a versatile instrumentalist explore the living landscape, immersing us in a new world of sound and movement, burgeoning with music given the time and space to emerge from all the greenery. Blades of grass heavy with dew, speckles of sunshine, the buzz of insects and the whispering breeze form a sensory universe that celebrates the miniature miracles of everyday life.
