THE BUTTERFLY MAN
Dansens Hus, Oslo 2016
The art of dance for younger children.
Choreographer Inger Cecilie Bertran de Lis uses simple means to create a poetic and magical performance for younger children, incorporating dance, paper, cardboard and shadow play.
We meet a boy full of dreams that he expresses through dance and movement, and by creating his very own colourful universe. His greatest dream is to be as free and colourful as a butterfly.
Sommerfuglmannen (The butterfly man)
We meet a boy full of imagination,
There's so much he wants to create,
So much he wants to say.
He has a book of dreams,
He swims in a sea of colour
So very fragile, yet so very strong,
He creates a butterfly,
