Festival de Tenerife brings Akari to the Canary Islands for the first time. The show is a sound and visual experience for all the family that includes dance, lights and shadows. The show is for babies aged 6 months to 4-year-old kids and is taking place on Sunday, 25th at 5:00 pm at Sala Castillo in Auditorio de Tenerife. In the show, the Granada company Da.Te Danza deals with the concept of energy, its development and its relationship with children and their environment.

Akari looks into the properties of light and the special way it travels through the air with performers Inés García and David Barrera on stage under the direction of Omar Meza. Light, half-light, shadow and darkness are all part of the show as well as how we need to get close to a sunbeam to warm up our skin and why we close our eyes when we do so.

Shapes, colours, emotions, moods, links, relationships... It’s all narrated through dance guided by light. During the 45-minute show, we can read a short text written by stage director Julia Ruiz Carazo. Following Da.Te Danza method, the first phase is research, this time done by Catalina Sako, who is a specialist in the field of energy and has given her advice on the different stages of energy development in babies.
