(Droplets) is a performance about water as an essential resource not to
be wasted, but to be valued and loved. The dramatisation, based on
words and sounds, unravels throughout a journey from the Western world
to Africa, in search of enchantment and magic.
Elements on which the performance is based are a thirsty camel, waiting for a cloud and the moment of joy when the rain finally falls.
Fabiana and Guglielmo, through effective and simple actions, invite the children to listen to the water; whether it flows in all its abundance or whether there is very little of it and needs to be gathered drop by drop.
…every single drop is of great importance when water is a rare commodity and when rain becomes a long-awaited event. Every little droplet contains a sound to caress and love. Every single droplet is a precious little friend to protect…
Goccioline is a show of few words based on the way the actors interact on the stage, through a game of glances, silence and actions which take the audience into a humorous and delicate ambience, full of life and meaning.
