Advisory for audiences
The performance and installation is designed and recommended for pre-walking babies (from 6 months and up) and neuro-divergent young children with additional mobility needs, who would enjoy music, movement and sensory objects in an aesthetic setting.
Due to the need for social distancing and no intermingling between groups, the nature of this performance will not be suitable for active babies who have started to walk independently.
