The Waters is a multi-sensory performance about swimming, rain, ice, showers, refreshments, toilet bowls, tears and pasta cooking water. The Waters is light and sound art, live music, puppet theater and circus. The performance takes place above and around the audience. The Waters is speechless.
The Waters takes into account the special characteristics and needs of babies as an audience, but the show also addresses a wider audience.
Along with the artistic group, the Väriläiskä expert group consisting of 5-8 year olds from The Cultural Center PiiPoo is responsible for the performance content.
