About

“Some days are yellow. Some are blue. On different days, I’m different too” (Dr. Seuss).

Enter a world where colors become a place of relationships and emotions. Italy’s Compagnia TPO and Teatro Metastasio explore children’s perceptive, emotional, and creative relationships to colors with a physical dance piece. Dancers maneuver a set brought to life with fabric, projections, and sensors for exciting movements and sounds. Performers will interact with audience members—and some may even have the chance to get up on the stage and join in the colorful landscape!

Presented in collaboration with the Embassy of Italy and the Italian Institute of Culture. Most enjoyed by age 5 and up. All patrons, regardless of age, must have a ticket.

Stay after for an Interactive "Playground" Experience
The show will follow with an optional 25 minute interactive experience in which audience members can come on stage and dance with the responsive projections.
