Language is the springboard for fun and games in this interactive, family-friendly production. How much delight can we find together exploring the different sounds and shapes that are the tools of cross-cultural human communication? Double & Cross Theater Group is at the forefront of creating performances for children in Taiwan, but there is plenty here to engage and tickle the fancy of grownups too. The company's skillful, inviting use of movement, music, images and objects is pretty much guaranteed to win over audiences of any age. European premiere.
