How High The Sky

I had never imagined that a performance for babies under one could be so revealing of human nature! The world created by the artists – the morphing shape of the floor, the sounds, the images that were not quite abstract and not quite realistic – was engrossing, but the moment when all the parents and carers left the space leaving 12 babies by themselves in a magical sensory world (that included other babies, of course!) was a revelation! Suddenly they were all revealed as unique human beings, already with their personalities separate from their parents, already with clear attitudes and approaches to their lives. It was breath-taking.
