And Then...

And Then... is dance and soft circus expressed in a polyphonic and imaginary world. Four characters meet to tell and present their story in different ways. Objects roll around, things move and perspectives change through dance, speech and song. Someone is talking about dancing bees, another about dexterous opposites and ingeniousness. 

And Then... is a suggestive puzzle, a playful treasure hunt and a riddle. Inspired by new research into neurodiversity this is a world where everything is equal in value: the animated room, body and sounds. What is it like to be in a world where we cannot discern any single experience - where everything is of the same value?

In October and November 2018 Claire Parsons Co. was performing AND THEN at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, as a part of the Kids Euro Festival. Watch the show below - recorded October 28th at The Kennedy Centre.
With Viktor Gyllenberg, Andre Kaliff, Linn Ragnarsson and Amanda Roynesdotter.
Linda Zachrisson, Counsellor for Cultural Affairs in Washington, introduces the company.

Special thanks to the Embassy of Sweden and Cultural Attaché Linda Zachrisson and incomparable cultural progam officer Jenny Mählkvist Cabezas for inviting us to be part of a fantastic Euro Kids Festival and arranging an amazing week.
Thank you also for the economic support that made this possible!
