Childhood is the diamond of our lives. Hooray, the Italians are coming! At long last we get to see this little gem of a dance theatre piece that has been presented everywhere (else) on the planet! Two dazzling performers move easily between the roles of parents and children as they relate Nina and Tommaso’s wild adventure. The inseparable siblings share a bond that’s stronger than anything: stronger than beatings, stronger than fire, stronger even than distance. Childhood is a treasure, and our zany heroes have created a bubble, a crazy imaginary world. They invite us in, and for the next hour or so, we’re all 10 years old! Written by Bruno Stori Direction and Dramatic art : Bruno Stori and Letizia Quintavalla Ages 6 to 12. Performance is approximately 55 minutes with no intermission.
