Interactive movement performance for children from 10 months to 2 years

Every child is a little world, worth to value regardless of its racial, cultural and social origin. All these little worlds compose the world. It is important to cherish every little world, so later they cherish and value the world. The idea of the diversity of the world is introduced to baby audience by means of colours and shapes, objects and movements used in the performance as well as specially composed music. The possibility for baby audience to join the action of the performance is important to develop their creativity since very early age.

“The main idea of the interactive movement performance for babies is the infant’s perception of himself as a whole being and recognition of others. In our performance the method of interactivity is used: babies-spectators can investigate puppets of the show at any time during the performance. This allows toddlers to get positive emotional experiences that come from being in an artistic environment. ” – Director Birutė Banevičiūtė

Established in 1958, the Kaunas State Puppet Theatre has staged more than 300 puppet productions performed on numerous tours to foreign countries and participated in many festivals. The theatre follows the idea that everything that is being done at the theatre should belong to the little ones, the theatre of today, alongside with traditional puppet performances, should be searching for new and engaging ways of association with little spectators who should experience utmost satisfaction and impact on their consciousness and feelings. Kaunas State Puppet Theatre also performs in schools and is involved with therapeutic work for children in hospitals and sanatoriums. Its repertoire consists of the fairy tales and folk stories from Lithuania, as well as well-known tales from around the world.
