The rays are my legs. The pedals are my feet.
Once reached, the right speed transports me like an invisible stream, and it never stops.
I like riding my bike all day long. And at night? At night, you just need to turn on the lights!
Three characters on two wheels set off on a surreal journey to light the world in a new way: riding a bike and pedal to turn on a bedside lamp, a railway station, streetlights.
Wearing a dress that changes colour, walking through the wind and under the rain.
A show in which the protagonists are the lighting fixtures, and where, in order to turn on the lights, we need to transform the energy by pedalling on bikes-generators.
After telling stories with lights, spotlights and switches, the research on “Lights and Theatre” carried out by La Baracca – Testoni Ragazzi explores the theme of sustainable energy, as an occasion to make children approach this issue, continuing to amaze them and convey the joy of playing with the light.
