Dance performance “CATCH ME” is about the courage of six parents to face the challenge of learning the movements and motion of their children. By repeating the situations made by their kids they worked on their physical endurance and precision at the same time beating their inner fears and struggles.
“CATCH ME” is a deed which asked several months of work and the observance of behavior of children. Kids were given the room for free flow of movement and their actions have been documented in video. The obtained video materials acted as a basis for the creation of the choreography. Will the parents succeed in reflecting the movements of their own children? The children will have the opportunity to find out if their parents have succeeded by seeing them perform. The audience is invited to look at the results of the accepted challenge.
