About You and me...

Two bodies that breathe everything that surrounds them. Two bodies that appreciate what they do not know, two bodies that emerge, grow and discover themselves in their tender life through play and curiosity. "You and me", and dance... for those tiny hearts that love life.

"You and me" beats within those places common to people, which when shared become present and make us better by recognizing them. "You and me" is born with the condition of using the limits that coexist with people, and using them as a discourse for the creation of the show.

Designed especially for early childhood, this show opens up a world of possibilities for babies, boys, girls (6 months and older) and families.

Under the slogan "A show conceived for a diverse audience", we seek to create a space where people can live a unique experience, learning in a simple way to accept, appreciate and respect others. This delicate world of sensations reveals the imperative need we all have to be recognized, as well as to recognize others.

The sensibility towards the illumination and the look, the delicacy pulsed with each music to be perceived in its vibration, the sign language in the hands for the dance, the senses as motors of the choreographic details. Stimuli to not feel limited, and to be able to advance, learn and overcome.

At "You and Me" we celebrate diversity and make inclusion our norm.

⸻ Supplementary training proposal
Dancing at family

A training proposal directed by Omar Meza as a complementary activity to the performance of the show "Tú y yo" by the DA.TE Danza Company.

Introduction

Dance is capable of creating unconventional spaces that make fathers, mothers, boys and girls capable of reaching a more intimate communication through the work with movement and space. Omar Meza, presents a workshop for young and old to discover and enjoy new possibilities of movement, starting from actions that are part of their daily lives, through their body and their expressive abilities.

This workshop generates a common creative space among the children, as well as among the adults who accompany them, in which a cooperative bond is established that fosters a meaningful experience through movement and dance.

Encouraging creativity as a family, a personal language is woven through the use of different qualities of movement, physical contact, the use of space, breathing and music. As tools, dance, play, improvisation, physical contact, the use of the voice and scenographic elements, among others, generate among the protagonists a new way of sharing, learning and relating.
