We will gain insights into other worlds through the work of the first animators. With ‘Mister Moon’ we meet a peculiar but very expressive Moon. Lotte Reiniger and her shadows will transport us back to a time in which the Far East was still so foreign and exotic that it seemed from another planet. The Canadian animator Norman Maclaren will entertain us with the dance of his ‘toys’ in his ‘dots and doodles’ land. Finally, for the older kids, Tim Burton’s fantasy will take us to darker worlds.
Using shadows, lights and colours, we will transform the cinema into a very special space where kids will participate in an interactive and sensational experience. We will use voices, homemade instruments, torches and other scenic elements.
