A dance floor for kids in the creative surroundings of the Palais de Tokyo in Paris
Presented for the first time at the Villa Noailles on Hyères at the «Festival des enfants», BABYDISCO provides an introduction to certain aspects of contemporary artistic activity such as dance, music and video. BABYDISCO teaches us two lessons: that children have an immediate perception of the location while their parents see a part of their own world rediscovered by their children.

BABYDISCO is at the Palais de Tokyo, Paris, for a period of three months. From 26 September 2008 to 4 January 2009 it is open to children from four to seven years of age on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays. Bookings have to be made in advance. The programme includes workshops with choreographers, musicians and artists (BABYDISCO workshop), the dance floor without parents (BABYDISCO party), activities with the artists project Tok-Tok, live DJ sets (BABYDISCO DJ set) and the monthly «Colette baby dance class». The events are supervised by the Palais de Tokyo team and last for about an hour. The disco is a place for socialisation to which parents don't have access.
BABYDISCO is an installation by «I could never be a dancer» (Carine Charaire and Olivier Casamayou), produced by prolimniA in cooperation with Florence Doléac (Design), Guillaume Sorge (musical programme design) and Yi Zhou (video). BABYDISCO is supported by Little Marc Jacobs. Media partners: Elle and Uovo.
