The floor is white paper. Two dancers roll, crawl, and turn on the floor.Their actions and movements leave colored traces on the paper…red, blue, and yellow. Slowly a colorful painting is created, made not only with brushes or with hands and fingers but also with the whole body. Kleur/Color is a performance especially created for children between the ages of 2 to 6 years old.
In Kleur/Color children experience that painting can be physical and dynamic action, and the various treatments and movements can produce diverse forms on the paper. Thereby encouraging the understanding of physical language, the choreography becomes visible on the paper synthesizing the two art forms: painting and dancing.
