BABYDISCO is an installation devised by “I could never be a dancer” (Carine Charaire and
Olivier Casamayou), with the assistance of Florence Doléac (design), Guillaume Sorge
(musical programming) and Yi Zhou (video)
First produced and presented in 2004 at the Villa Noailles (Hyères) during the Festival des
enfants, BABYDISCO takes the form of a nightclub for children.
Devised as a place offering initiation into certain aspects of contemporary creativity
(dance, music, video…) BABYDISCO can be interpreted in two ways, depending on the
point of view adopted: children have an immediate, play-oriented perception of the place,
while their parents see part of their universe being reinvented by the children.
On the program: workshops with choreographers, artists and musicians, Tok-Tok activities, DJ sets live with the greatest DJs twice a month, Colette baby dance class
once a month …
BABYDISCO will be installed at the Palais de Tokyo for three months.
It will be accessible to 4 to 7-year-old children, in groups of 12, on Wednesdays,
Saturdays and Sundays, on reservation through the Internet (www.palaisdetokyo.com,
under young public) at a charge of 8, 10 or 12 euros per child.
The sessions, supervised by the young public service of the Palais de Tokyo, will last
approximately one hour during which the discotheque will become a socialization area to
which parents do not have access.
