A Small Anatomy (4+)

My arms are longer than yours, so I can touch you from further away. You have very small fingers to quickly untie my laces. Your mouth is the largest, you can fit a whole sandwich in it. Your head is so small that it can disappear completely into my armpit. And what is it like inside? Is my hunger bigger than yours? Who needs to pee the most? And if cheerfulness had a color, would it be different for everyone?

In A Small Anatomy, four performers map the body and get to know it better. With dance and live music they take a journey through all the limbs, sensations and feelings that belong to the body. At first this goes decently, but soon the playful urge to explore creeps in. The feet fly off the floor, the thumbs dance in all directions and the performers climb on each other’s shoulders. The voice also participates: singing, growling, sneezing and occasionally some talking. Together with the audience, the performers discover that our bodies are all different. Sometimes they fit together perfectly, sometimes there is a big toe in the way.
