How light is a cloud? (4+)
Het Houten Huis / Feikes Huis - The Netherlands
14:30 - 15:15
About the desire to float weightlessly in the sky.
The three people on stage feel like a dadger on the inside. One of them makes pottery, the other plays music, and the third is constantly moving. The three of them are trying to tell us a story; about being quiet on the inside, and how hard that is.
I am badger. I love solitary walks and quiet, peaceful places where I can oversee all things. I like to wear a hat, as it keeps my thoughts together. But recently, a woodpecker has moved into my hat, and he made a hole in it. The woodpecker has invited all his friends, and now it’s a pandemonium in there. Sometimes it goes quiet, but instantly new thoughts will pop into my mind. Beautiful, endless and winding thoughts, as well as pressing questions, like: how light is a cloud?
A performance for all those who cannot hear the woods through the clamour. ‘How light is a cloud?’ is loosely inspired by the picture book ‘ Mr. Brown’s Fantastic Hat‘ by Ayano Imai.
