Imaginary leaps is very proud to be accepted as a member of the international early years childrens theatre network Small Size! The Network is a member of ASSITEJ International, Childrens Theatre association
Small Size was founded in 2005 with the support of the European Commission and the Culture 2000 programme. It was established by 4 professional theatre and educational arts organisations: La Baracca (Italy), Théâtre de la Guimbarde (Belgium), Acción Educativa (Spain) and GOML (Slovenia).
The project promotes audience development, in particular the development of children-spectators, making children approach performing arts both in Europe and worldwide, because children, even the youngest ones, have the right to be viewed as spectators of today and not only of tomorrow, and that they are human beings and not just “human becomings”.
Small size Network was founded as an Artistic International Association in 2007 with the aim to widen the performing arts for early years (0-6 years). The Association promotes training, documentation and partnership and friendship programs.
Starting from 2015, every year the network promotes the Small size days. On the last week-end of January, shows, workshops, events dedicated to children 0-6 will take place in all associates’ venues all over the world.
Today the associates are 55 from 4 continents and 26 different countries: Austria, Belgium, Cameroon, Chile, Croatia, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Lithuania, Mexico, Poland, Romania, Singapore, Slovenia, South, Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, UK, USA and now Australia!
