Baby Space is created as enjoyable and safe artistic environment which offers to infants and adults an extraordinary experience.
The space itself, its specificity and its contents, stimulate all the senses by combining visual arts, dance, music and poetry. All the elements are carefully brought together to introduce the setting for exceptional artistic and social experience – stimulating the perception of the youngest ones, encouraging interaction, sparking their curiosity and triggering exploration.
Baby Space secures the conditions for the cherished moments of relaxation and gives memorable time to all.

Baby Space functions in two ways: as an installation - accessible for visit for several hours a day and as a dance performance inside the installation - scheduled at certain hours
The installation space is clearly separated from the surroundings and this installation consist of three different, connected spaces. Its interior is made of soft and resilient material that is pleasant and smooth to touch. It contains soft objects of a various size for playing and enjoying.

Music and poetry created for the project is constant in the space and choreography, performed by dancers, takes place at the certain time of the day.
