Have you ever moved your arms as if they were wings to imitate the flight? Have you ever tried to move your legs in the sea water as if they were the dorsal fin of a fish? Have you ever dreamt you flew? Then, of course you know about wingbeats.
But a wingbeat is also the vehement palpitation of the heart. So you are about to move arms, legs and heart to enjoy a puppet show for children and adults with a flying imagination.
This is our menu:
Martin Palillo spreads with fish his wineskin but neither has he, nor fish. Do you want me to tell you again? Every night, coming back from the sea, he looks at his nets and his hamper. Nothing. Another unfruitful day, without fishes. Just only a sea wink to trick the hunger.
Martin can not wait for fishing some luck someday, that the fortune smiles at him, that his destiny changes and came to the sea with the same eagerness back then, because nowadays Martin does not fish FISH, nor swimming, nothing, nor wore suit and his life is a dog chasing its own tale going round and round in circles. In his boat he feels like to be in one ́s element but at home he feels like a fish out of water.
One day a little bird – maybe the destiny- whispers him that someone waits for him in a place of the ocean.
We invite you to fly out of here and take us in this puppet show, embellished with violoncello live music and lots of poetry.
