The choreography featured in wonderwander is directly inspired by a research project with very young children ages 2-5 and their caregivers. In this research, the wonderwander team explored early childhood movement patterns, social exchange, and the joy that can result from non-verbal, dance-based play.
Amanda served as the lead researcher, choreographer, and dancer on this project.This production is made possible in partnership with Kerfuffle.
