The texts are an assortment of tales written or compiled by diverse authors (from Lucian of Samosata to Virginia Woolf, Emanuel Swedenborg to Blaise Cendrars). There are stories of walking trees, burning dresses, illnesses mysteriously cured, and deaths surprisingly reversed. The music consists of sonic readings and reactions to the stories.

KAO make & play is a creative platform combining graphic workshop and performance making.
KAO make & play is unique in its combination of graphic and physical expression. It is an experience in bridging disciplines, experiencing on different levels; through representation, through movement, through listening: in the space of 2 hours, children create a performance from scratch; invent characters, stage them, and perform in an improvised, self invented play. KAO make & play promotes self-confidence and pleasure, in a process where there is no such thing as doing wrong. For kids age 8/14.
Isabelle Vigier (designer/visual artist) Makiko Ito(dancer/chreographer) Anne LaBerge and Jochem van Tol (musician and performance artists)
