Libelle is a performance for young audiences of 7+, which is both a dance-show and a music-concert. Inspired by the insect Libelle - dragonfly in English - which transforms and changes form throughout her lifetime, the performance shape-shifts from one movement play into another. The costumes, set design and movements, were conceived as fantastic interpretations of the dragonfly life and form. The process of developing the piece included regular workshops with children, in which exercises were shared and the children’s feedback was integrated. The music in the performance is based on simple rhythms and beats, in an interplay with the performers reactions and the audience’s, ultimately evolving into an original Libelle pop song.
