An immersive dance show for babies aged 3-12 months.

“Doing theatre for babies is to explore the unknown. It goes against common sense. It’s political. It’s also necessary, I believe, because babies have a right to beauty and they’re not always exposed to it. Theatre for babies implies commitment, but a commitment that draws us in. It’s the opposite of cynicism. It’s hope in its purest form. It’s an attempt to talk with the beginning of the world.” – Veronique Coté, Theatre des Confettis, Quebec

Created especially for babies by a team of award-winning artists, AN ATTEMPT TO TALK WITH THE BEGINNING OF THE WORLD is a luminous world full of playful up-close dance, intriguing immersive sound and light and many many ping pong balls!
