Little Top

Starcatchers and SUPERFAN (Scotland)

Circus and dance

from 0 to 18 months

45 minutes

Little Top will transport you to a playful, joyous, upside down, topsy-turvy world where people can fly, patterns fill the air and anything is possible.

At a time in their development when young children are discovering their own physicality and the pleasures and perils of gravity, Little Top invites babies to experience spectacular balances, astonishing tumbles and inventive juggling in a specially-designed set that miniaturises the magic of the Big Top.

Little Top‘s beautiful set creates a colourful, cosy and welcoming space where professional circus acrobats, tumblers and jugglers perform up close in babies’ line of sight, making eye contact, and interacting and responding to their young audience.
