Marmalade Claire Parsons Co.
What is marmelade? Is it cherry, pear, figs, mint flavor, upside down, together or inside out? A delicious, sensory performance about meeting, mixing and blending. Mira and Viktor taste and feel in poetic movements and circus actions in an exquisite and visual experience together with the audience. Marmelade looks at the world through body, eye, feeling and taste in a room with fluffy skirts, soft circus and Fellini music.
Marmelade is choreographer Claire Parsons’ first dance production for young children from 2 – 6 years.
