“When I was a baby, a little baby, I never wanted to go to sleep with the light on… I closed my eyes and waited for the lights of my dreams to switch on”.
The show developed from an “experiment” carried out in the crèches, where we could observe the children’s relationship with light and darkness. On stage there is an actor but the real protagonist is the light. Music and movements create a dance by following the rhythms of the switches. The light can be everything. Lamps, bulbs and cables become a flower, a spoon, a dancer, a candle, a carrousel… They become a mother, a father or a child.
“On-off” is a tribute to the children’s amazement at the behavior of light and to their interest towards controlling it and its intensity through the use of switches.
It is a game and a way to help them not be afraid of the darkness.
On the occasion of its participation to Tiba Festival in Belgrade, the show On-off received the ASSITEJ Serbia AWARD FOR THE BEST ARTISTIC ACHIEVEMENT.
Simple words come along with the actors’ action, looking for a unity of image made of lights sounds and movements.
