ICB Productions has started on a new performance «Tumble in the Jungle» for children between the ages of 2 and 5, which will première at Dansens Hus on 3 October 2018, where 10 performances will be given from 3 to 7 October 2018.


In «Tumble in the Jungle», Bertrán de Lis seeks to create a performance tailored for hearing-impaired children, who she believes have been overlooked in the dance arts. Bertran de Lis works in a theatrical expression that is highly visual, where she uses theatrical means. The hearing-impaired are concerned with: movement, the visual, and the tactile. At the same time, the performance will also be for other children without this impairment. Bertran de Lis believes that a performance for all children in this age group can have a unifying effect. The performance will focus on humour, fellowship and recognition. These are topics that small children can recognise, and which can bring them joy and a sense of reward in the moment.  Many people perceive joy and humour as a basic element of life. These are feelings that express something very deep on a human level. Children understand humour far before they start understanding language, which indicates that humour is one of the earliest cognitive processes that form. Humour is about being present in the moment, and laughter shows that we are alive and find joy in the peculiarities of life.
