FIRST LIGHT 

Co-created by Daniel Naddafy and Marty Langthorne for the Barbican

 

Bathe in sound and light with your baby as you explore the wonders of how their senses develop. Sit, lie down or stand while sharing this immersive, intimate experience.

Inspired by baby lab research into the expanding vision of children from birth until 18 months, this 15-minute installation distills the world of awakening perception into a unique show. Real-life soundscapes harmonies and echo a newborn’s hearing, this is designed to be enjoyed by both baby and their grown up.

First Light was created by Daniel Naddafy, and artist & lighting designer Marty Langthorne in December 2021. The installation was presented and co-commissioned by the Barbican and developed with support from Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts, De Montfort University and, Half Moon Theatre.
