Playing with dolls, having mountains of soft cuddly toys, comforting, and playing mom and dad. Toddlers are masters in stepping into the shoes of their father, mother or teacher for a second. Downright love. In a kind-heartedly physical spectacle, we examine this phenomenon.
Sweet is a heart-warming theatre of dance for the little ones, from the makers of, among others, Alice in Wonderland and Nobody’s Boy. In the spring of 2017, Maas travelled through the Netherlands with Love (8+). Director Moniek Merkx created Sweet as a version for toddlers.
