The problem with pink is that it’s everywhere! So if pink is just for girls, things might get complicated. That’s the topic that divides a group of four happily rambunctious friends who previously had never known a moment of worry in their cozy and... pink play space! When a fear of judgment creeps into their world, division and mistrust take hold. If the colour pink is only for girls, how will this change the world in which they live and play?

While the question of gender identity is at the heart of societal issues, this exhilarating dance drama provides children with a space to reflect on the clichés associated with boys and girls. It invites them to enter life with their bundle of unique experiences and to conceive the future with boldness, brightness and freedom.

"The show is rich and thoughtful and will help anchor tolerance and openness in children." Teacher
