Sadly, our society remains trapped in stereotypes, many of which are nonsensical and absurd. If there is something that fiercely defies and refuses to obey, it is the Norwegian dance show Rock Me Baby, created for the little spectators and not just their fathers. Five queer performers in sparkly costumes, conspicuous make-up and punk hairstyles present something totally unexpected, playful and very sensitive. Its authors, Karstein Solli and Øystein Elle, have extensive experience with young audiences, and their work is based on complex research on stimuli that are comfortable for our little ones. Even though Rock Me Baby may feel like pretty hard stuff, including sound, it is adapted to the needs of young audiences. The result is a welcoming, playful, and creative show that reaches out to the audience, entertaining and enthusing anybody watching it with an open heart and mind.
