A journey to discover life, starting from the four elements that create life.
A game that two actors lead through their bodies, live music and simple, evocative words, by telling a "natural" story. In a dinamic situation, the process of creation and transforming is reproduced, by giving to the child the possibility to feel and recognize himself in one or the other element.
The show started after a year and a half of workshop activities inside the créches: the four elements have guided the long path of experimentation, and gave the chance to collect the suggestions and reactions of the little ones who played, listened, smelled, touched, tasted.
Air, Fire, Earth and Water become companions of an experiential journey of discovery, involvement and sensorial activation. duration: 30’
The show is staged within the international festival of theatre and culture for early years Visioni di futuro, visioni di teatro (Bologna, 28th February - 8th March, 2020).
