Kleine große Sprünge
von Jasmin İhraç
Age 6 and over / Year 1 and above
Four dancers and a musician embark on a quest to find the last tree in the world. They cross deserts and volcanic landscapes, dive down to the depths of the ocean and find out what it feels like to float through space. They take a step, dare to leap, hesitate, fall, run and discover what they’re made of. In the course of this incredible journey, they discover ways of overcoming obstacles – those that they encounter in their immediate environment, and those in their heads. What challenges do we all face? And how can we encourage each other to take little big leaps?
