Baby theatre is now a thing

Parents may wonder when it is the right time to start different activities with their children. They are unsure whether their child is ready to take in a number of external stimuli and if not, will it scare them into rejecting them further down the road. A theatrical performance is of those things you can never be sure about.. until now anyway.

The new baby theatre performance entitled Bloom, which will start as of Monday, is the first of its kind to be specially designed for babies from six to eighteen months.

Bloom – the sound you make when hitting the water – is an exciting adventure that takes infants on a magical journey of discovery at the bottom of the ocean. The wonderful world of the ocean comes alive in front of these very young eyes, it grabs their attention, awakens their senses and promises to have them giggling and reaching out their hands to join in the action.

The performance will include unique and interesting sea creatures, original music and intense images that will zone into the infants’ emotional worlds.

But the kids only get to have half the fun, the only half is left for the parents who will get to see their children’s reactions, strengthen their bond with their child and also take the first steps towards introducing the world of theatre to their children.

Performances will take place in the Open Minds space. It has been designed especially for the needs of the performances and the needs of very young children.

Bloom was created by Lena Kasiou and Anthi Kettirou, and it is performed by Constantinos Demetriou and Christalla Skordou.

Theatrical performance for babies from six -18-months-old. July 10,11,12,14,17 and 18 at 6pm and on July 14 and 15 at 10am. Open Minds, Strovolos Avenue 220. €12 per infant and escort. Tel: 96-888336 or 96-455929
