Starcatchers and SUPERFAN present Little Top, a magical first circus experience for babies aged 0 – 18 months and their adults, created by Ellie Dubois and Kim Donohoe.
At a time in their development when young children are discovering their own physicality and the pleasures and perils of gravity, Little Top invites babies to experience spectacular balances, astonishing tumbles and inventive juggling in a specially-designed set that miniaturizes the magic of the Big Top.
Becky Minto’s beautiful set creates a colorful, cozy and welcoming space where professional circus acrobats, acro-balancers and jugglers perform up close in babies’ line of sight, making eye contact, and interacting and responding to their young audience.
Babies and adults alike are transported into a playful, joyous, upside down, topsy-turvy world where people can fly, patterns fill the air and anything is possible.
Created by Ellie Dubois and Kim Donohoe, produced by Starcatchers.
