The magic of water travels into the theatre and drop by drop creates its stories.
A character is born from movement. It is magically transformed and rises from a fountain to transports us to a world of play where objects shaped like two raindrops, an umbrella and a washing up bowl bring us closer to the myriad of forms of the precious liquid. This is a story of magic, friendship, the beauty of the universe but also a story of greed and generosity. The value of water is the value of one’s own life.
Yheppa brings to the scene a performance for children between 4 and 8 years and families filled with dark light, dancing, magic, acting, puppets, objects and image projection.
