Petit Big Blue Poster
Petit Big Blue, by Juan Pablo Mendiola (2018)

Movement, shapes, and colors offer an experience that encourages early childhood and their families to recognize emotions.

PETIT BIG BLUE is big and blue. He is big, blue, and very curious.
His curiosity leads him to unknown places and awakens a range of new emotions.

Taking the pictorial universe of Wassily Kandinsky as a starting point, we will embark on a small journey with ENE and PETIT BIG BLUE through their new emotional inventory.

The proximity of the audience to the performers makes the show a unique experience for children and their families, allowing them to enjoy dance, visual arts, and digital arts in a way that is completely unknown to them.

A visual proposal in which gesture, dance, and visual arts converse to offer an experience that stimulates the desire to play for the youngest and their older companions, discovering along the way some emotions that we will all be able to identify.

A project aimed at an especially sensitive audience segment with a great need for projects focused on plastic, sensory, and emotional stimulation.

An excellent audiovisual engineering, with a refined technique by Juan Pablo Mendiola and the choreographic direction, very precise and well drawn by Cristina Fernández, wonderful as always.

This work has a totally sensory and immersive experience that an art gallery does not have. It integrates visual art, music, digital media and dance, and is absolutely a wholehearted inspiration and experience.
