TÓIN SHOW: DANCE FOR SECOND CHILDHOOD

Dedicated to children aged 3 to 7, Tóin: Dance for Second Childhood tells the story of three characters and their imaginary friends.

The research was stimulated by the book As Cidades Invisíveis by Ítalo Calvino, revealing the “Marco Polinhos” that populate children's imagination. Gláucia de Souza, Maurilo Andreas, Eva Furnari, and Maria Amália Camargo illustrate the poetic vision of the show.

Heroes, robots, characters from films and videos and current children's stories make up the fantastic adventure experienced by Juju do Mustache Azul, R20 and Romieta and their friends from other worlds. Different, they meet on the enchanted ball to play dance, each in their own way.

TÓIN SHOW: DANCE FOR BABIES

Designed by Jussara Miranda, TÓIN was created from a very simple and inspiring idea: using dance as a toy for babies, their parents, caregivers and companions. Recipient of the Funarte Klauss Vianna MINC Dance Prize (2012), he was a pioneer in Brazil, using the language of dance in the form of a show and aimed at an early childhood audience. Since then, it has traveled to four regions of Brazil in Festivals, Meetings and programs focusing on young children, participating in 2010 in the Game for Babies on the Ana Maria Braga Program.

There are four main characters: Maria Flor, Ventania, Guria Papel and Sua Mola. Like my Marias, comments Jussara, Mariana, Maria Clara and Maria Eduarda were inspired by love, and also Flor, illustrated in the 3D animated short film. Ventania was born from stories told by dancers Denis Gosch and Joana Amaral illustrated in the book Strange Stories by Maurilo Andreas, from whose fun reference we extract the story “the boy who pulled cats out of his nose”. “La Meme Histoire (Dream Dance)"brought the lightness of the encounter between a love letter and an unknown destiny, revealing the fluency of the dancer Ventania's movements. Mola was the idea that started Tóin. It stretches and when released it makes tóin...tóin...tóin...

The character Sua Mola is clumsy and very much in the “zuzu” fashion, the little witch of Eva Furnari and Maurilo Andreas in Estranhas Histórias, is confused and mischievous. (Silly Symphonies - The Skeleton Dance) inspired the movements. Speaking of characters, it's nothing strange when one of them becomes another, like Ventania in Maria Flor, or in Dona Varal, who is a hanger-person on which everyone hangs. TÓIN provides the care that babies deserve and need, welcoming them as special guests from reception to interaction, with an air-conditioned environment, baby changing facilities and mediation.
