The performance’s main element will be a bath tub. A transparent one. It will remind us of an aquarium. An aquarium as a children's playground for somewhat older children. An aquarium as a space for a theatre performance. An aquarium as a television. And, a bath tub is actually one of child's first playgrounds. A playground as a space for playing, learning and creating. And a space of child's first theatre experiences. A bath tub is like a sandpit, only that there's water in it instead of the sand. An empty bath tub is like an empty sheet of paper, waiting for us to fill it with water and step into it. A bath tub could be like a Pandora's Box, only that it contains no anger or hatred – just water. Water as a source of life, or a source of knowledge about life, or a spell of life, or a philosophy of life. Like the water cycle. A journey from winter to summer. An universal story about relationships, balance and cooperation.
the bath tub will provide both – sets and puppets. Water will be a
theatre polygon, through which a child/man/puppet get to know their
physical characteristics and strengthen their awareness of their body
and the world that surrounds them. Water as one of the four elements.
Water in conjunction with earth, fire and air will lead to a story
about the establishment of an ecosystem. How and why the water cycle
is interrupted? How do we re-establish it, start it up?
