Bubu is the only boy in his family and his sisters are too young to look after the house. So his mummy and daddy have given him the task of washing all the family’s socks. It’s a boring job, and Bubu, during the washing, tells a story to himself. As if by magic, the socks come to life and turn into jungle animals: they will tell us how an extremely curious little elephant with a small nose was the first elephant ever to have a trunk, and how he discovered how useful it was. Bubu will meet animals of all colours and sizes, but he will also be accompanied by many songs, because every sock has a sound that makes him sing. They are sounds that recall Africa, voices that make us dream about the earth, the trees and the green, muddy water of the river. The story told by The Little Elephant is inspired by a tale written by Rudyard Kipling. Imagination, surprise, curiosity and music are the main elements of this play.
