In August of 2018, Amanda Pintore led the Lawrence Arts Center and the Center of Creative Arts in a partnership to create Color Play, a performance for very young children and their caregivers. Through the Lawrence Arts Center Play Lab research series, she collaborated with two early childhood centers to work with 3-5 year olds in both cities using dance, music, and imaginative play. Their ideas, movements, and sounds inspired the content for this performance.
We ask the questions: What does blue sound like? What does green do when it wakes up in the morning? How does orange dance? Very young audiences enter an interactive world where colors make noises, have wild dances, and create delightful surprises. The performance itself involves live music, exploratory art, and moments of interaction with the audience.
Amanda Pintore served as the lead researcher, director, and a performer on this project.
