About Paper Playground

A playful and interactive dance performance where children are free to join in and explore, because that's what young one’s do best! Paper Playground is a stimulating experience created especially for children five-and-under that is full of dancing, drawing, music and projections. Through the exploration of creative movement, Paper Playground welcomes children as true creative collaborators. Vancouver based choreographer Julie Lebel, and her Foolish Operations Ensemble project, create community engaged dances with and for babies, toddlers, children and their caregivers. This unique opportunity to share a special moment of discovery with your child is not to be missed.

Show Quotes

"Families involved in Lebel's dance are co-constructors of their own experience. They lead and they follow. They create and they collaborate. Children are competent in this world, able to make choices, solve problems and investigate and explore their physicality alone and in relationship to others, not based on external rules or competition."
- Susan Hoppenfeld, Director, Karen & Gary Simkin Family Child Development Centre at the Jewish Community Centre of Greater Vancouver
