Review:The Cosmic Dancer
We have been going to the Polka Theatre since Defne was 2 years old. When they started working with me as a blogger I was very happy because we love the place and the quality of the performances. Today's show The Cosmic Dancer, is performed by Italian company La Baracca.

Review:The Cosmic Dancer The show is suitable for children between 4 and 8 years old. It is  poetic and combined with digital projections very interesting and imaginative for the children. At times, Derin, 5 year old, seemed to lose his focus, but the changing projections,the music and the dance brought him back. He loved it when the actors spinned.
8 year old Defne said she liked the projections and the costumes a lot. She really wondered how the projections were made. She is also going to ballet and these days she does cartwheels all the time! When the ballerina did cartwheels during the show, Defne loved that!
Review:The Cosmic Dancer
Pepita wants to be a dancer. More than that, she wants to become a Cosmic Dancer, to swing from a star and be lifted by the clouds. But that’s not as easy as she thought, the stars are far away and the clouds slip through her fingers. If you would like to watch it, The Cosmic Dancer is performed daily till Monday.
