Mappamondo
A 2+ performance that stimulates to (re-)discover the nature around us.
Watch, listen, smell, touch. Rocks, mountains, grasslands, jungles. There are so many different landscapes on our planet!
The earth smells, the earth sounds. With sand, earth, water and stones, a dancer and a percussionist create a world of colours and sounds. Dancing to music from different continents and to the sounds of nature, the performers take the audience on an imaginary journey across the earth.
Mappamondo is a musical and sensory performance for children from the age of 2 and their family, in which the sounds of the earth come to life.
