The Mercat de les Flors presents a series of dance performances designed to appeal to children. The next piece to be performed is Akram Khan’s Chotto Desh (February 27th and 28th), which tells a cross-cultural story of the protagonists dreams and travels from Britain to Bangladesh. This is a heart-warming performance that delves into the resilience of the human spirit; it is aimed at eight-year-olds but is ideal to enjoy as a family. The following show, Dot (March 12th and 13th), takes the minimalist, conceptual art of American artist Sol De Witt as its starting point. Viewers will witness a white wall burst into colour and the performers dance and interact with the images projected, making new technology as much a protagonist of this piece as the performers. The company that put together this piece (Maduixa Theatre) has won the International Festival of Theatre for Children award and their performances are intended to inspire children to play and experiment. The final performance of the series, inTarsi (April 22nd-24th), is a humorous piece that combines dance with circus performance. The show is intended to “make people laugh as they think” and to encourage the audience to reflect on self-discovery and the nature of loneliness. The show is suitable for children six years and over.
