UNA STORIA SOTTOSOPRA / UPSIDE DOWN
Ages 1 to 4 years
company: La Baracca - Testoni Ragazzi
by: Andrea Buzzetti, Enrico Montalbani and Carlotta Zini
with: Andrea Buzzetti and Carlotta Zini
Scenes: Drawings by Enrico Montalbani
other info: Wide Eyes Co-production project
Two surreal characters live on different planes, they move along opposite sides and look at things from different points of view.
Each of them lives life with their own certainties and fears, both scared but curious to meet the other. Then, one day, the encounter.
Maybe by chance, maybe not, spaces turn upside down and points of view cross in an upturned place: a new, shared space where words told with the eyes and words drawn on blank sheets of paper become stories.
Objects and spaces change according to the eyes of the watcher.
