Choreography by Michelle Silagy
A dance/theatre performance conceived especially for children in their early years and young people with developmental disabilities and ASD.
“A delightful journey. The young people were completely entranced and mesmerized by the colours, shapes, movements, and sounds. What a treat for them to be able to enter the magical world to explore, and dance, and create shadows together as a wee community. Beautiful and heart warming, I was smiling all day!” – Parent
“We were so impressed with the inclusivity of the work. It was a true pleasure to go to a show designed with our students in mind. We all said we would love to do it again next year!” – TDSB Educator
Lost & Found
Written and designed by Andrew G. Young, Ginette Mohr, and Ingrid Hansen, with additional contributions by Elliott Loran. Lost and Found was created through the support of Theatre Direct and Lynda Hill. Backdrop designed and built by Andy Miller.
Everyday objects from the Lost and Found bin animate stories of animals and friendship. Scarves, coats, hats, and mittens come to life through music and puppetry arts.
A daylong workshop and presentation programme created especially for
Kindergarten & Grade 1 students.
Morning workshops in the classroom led by the artists of the company are followed by a performance of Lost and Found for all participating classes.
“Genius! Brilliant! This presentation was so entertaining and engaging but equally it was inspirational because it used everyday objects so that any child could immediately try out the ideas and techniques in class and at home. I was super inspired as well.
Thank You!” – Educator
“The kids really enjoyed the presentation. They were completely engaged, they loved the
addition of the music to the performance, manipulating everyday objects to create something new, etc. I’ve noticed that the kids are more interested in dramatic play. They use pieces of cloth and other found objects around the room to enhance their dramatic play. They also have started to
sing songs during their dramatic play.” – Educator
