BABIES IN SPACE
AN OUTER SPACE EXPERIENCE FOR ADULTS AND BABIES
May 17 through August 14, 2016
Woodruff Arts Center 1280 Peachtree St NE, Atlanta, GA 30309
Dashboard's newest production, commissioned by the Alliance Theatre is an outer-space-themed environment that engages babies, ages 0 to 24 months-old.
Situated in the Joe Bankoff Gallery at the Woodruff Arts Center, Babies in Space is an immersive environment open to the public for free daily (hours vary) with ticketed weekend performances. The visual component of Babies in Space consists of digital and sculptural works by artists Jane Cassidy (Tuscaloosa, AL) and Kelly O’Brien (Minneapolis, MN). Each piece is touchable, squeeze-able and toss-able for visitors. The performance element, created and performed by Atlanta's Fly on a Wall, will respond to the visual work and be fully interactive to engage the young audience.
