An imaginary journey across the earth with music and dance.

Using sand, earth, stones and a playful installation of percussion instruments, a dancer and a percussionist create a world of colours and sounds. Dancing to fragments of music from different continents and to the sounds of nature, the performers take the audience on a journey across the earth to discover nature. The richness of the soil is revealed in the wide variety of colors, materials, smells and sounds used in the performance.

 “A beautiful first theatre experience for the very young. Inventive and impulsive. Short but powerful. Playful and lively. An adventure for the youngest.” PZC Walcheren
