Sensescapes is a performance which proposes a choreographed, interactive and multi-sensory experience to babies 3-18 months old and their care-takers. It is conceived as an installation based environment, consisted of visual, tactile and auditory elements, which induces interplay of the audience's physical movement and sensory input. Sensescapes unfolds a series of carefully composed, interconnected events which aim to involve its audience, trigger their curiosity and encourage their agency in landscape rich in stimuli.
The performance concept and contents are created in accordance with the latest developmental research concerning perceptual, cognitive, and social abilities in infants.
