Ooujeeih! is inspired by the movements and sounds of the very small children. With this point of departure, the performance becomes a visual and sensory experience with a naive and cartoonish expression.
The dancers take on their individual characters, that during the course of the performance create their own world by means of long, colorful foam rubber tubes. These tubes can be connected and bent into different shapes, providing the dancers with material that is both firm and soft at the same time, allowing them to crawl through, sneak around and hide behind it.
After the show, children and adults are invited to explore the performance space.
