Premjere – 2017

    Light and a cello. Shadow and a cello. Reflection and a cello. These are the means to tell the story about a family who decides to leave their native valley and sets on a journey to Father’s Island. Having settled in different environment, they try to start a new life.

    Everything is happening beyond reality, it is a dream or a fantasy where light and slow motion reminds you of walking in the sand. The father is happy as if he had all the island in his huge hands. This island is an entire world which is not at all too big. The world is full of strangest things. But only for those who notice them.

    It is a story about a father. What is his role in the family? How is he? What is he doing? What is he dreaming of? It is said that it is the mother who keeps all the corners of the house. And what about father? Well, he keeps the entire sea in his hands…

    Our intention was to tell the story about the father and his world through the means of light, shadow, reflection, and music. Or maybe even not to tell, but to feel.

    This show is for all the children from 2 years old to the infinity and above. For all those souls who are able to notice strange things, to have feelings. For those who were used to sitting cosy in a corner of the room observing the darkness and the light making shadows dance.

    Why cello? People say its music heals the wounds.
