Touch and Go
SALLY CHANCE

Touch & Go entices, dares and entertains children in a playful environment. 2 year olds are invited to enter a playful world of shapes and pathways, stepping stones and lines, with two friendly dancers and a live guitarist. The children become part of the performance themselves or observe from a safe distance, touching and going – just as they need to.

LONG DESCRIPTION

Play – It’s like love, sunshine and broccoli all juiced up together. Lenore Skenazy, Free Range Kids

Touch & Go entices, dares and entertains children in a playful environment. 2 year olds are invited to enter a playful world of shapes and pathways, stepping stones and lines, with two friendly dancers and a live guitarist. The children become part of the performance themselves or observe from a safe distance, touching and going – just as they need to.

Daring the children, inviting the children, never saying sssshhhhh… Chiara Guidi

It’s easy to take the show home by grabbing a roll of plain old masking tape and perhaps a copy of Reggie and Lu (and the same to you) by Emma Quay, published by Hachette Children’s Books Australia, ISBN: 073361664X. If your child lets you know that Touch & Go is living on in their play let me know by e mailing sallychance@iprimus.com.au
