Practical information

45 minutes long. 4 musicians, two of them are also narrators. There is also a screen and a video projector on stage. 
 

Artistic idea

The idea is to initiate young children to the basic concepts of jazz in a playful manner by associating the music with short animated movies. For instance a double bass with legs walks to the sound of a walking bass, a spider shaped drum set swings (literally and musically)  on a string, a guitar/paintbrush adds a bit of colour,... When they combine, on stage and in the picture, Jazz happens . We also explore notions like the groove, improvisation, styles. Always by playing the music live and associating it with the animated illustrations.
