Flip-flops, sneakers, rubber boots, football shoes, slippers, ballerinas and the like – shoes are part of our lives. Sometimes we are “fit as a fiddle” or “topple over with enthusiasm”. On a constantly changing stage consisting of colourful, diverse shoes, the two dancers discover which stories or movements lie behind them. Imaginative and versatile, they use the shoes as a metaphor for the topics of their young audience: Where does the shoe pinch; What is getting on their nerves; When do they get cold feet? Shoes transform into the one insurmountable obstacle, become a floating mobilé and are always the starting point for new movements. Funny, poetic and sometimes belligerent, the mobile Pop Up performance invites children to marvel and reflect.
