Whispering in the Leaves
“Whispering in the Leaves” is the first production using this dewdrop theatre. It’s nonverbal movement and object theatre.
The story “Whispering in the Leaves” sets in the coming future, where the people gradually degenerate their sensations and cannot speak any languages. They can only communicate by making sounds or flashes of lighting. The nature is destroyed and their cities are polluted deeply. Therefore, they create a translucent structure D-D-Da as their home. Inside of it, D-Di-D-Di-D and D-D-Di-D-D live together and spend most of their time indoor. The outside world is too dirty to expose for a longer time. Meanwhile, they should practice exercises everyday in order to strengthen the body conditions.
This work is special design for kids from age 3 to 10 years old. We’ve been performed over hundred of shows both Chinese and international schools from 2012 to 2013. There is no language barrier for the performance itself but we do need to have a local language speaking assistant for give the instruction before the performing. Parents and teacher are welcome to watching the performance together with their kids.
