Maüra, filla de la terra

30 elephants under an umbrella

From La Petita Malumaluga company.

An old sailor. Many years ago. A small ship. Weeks at sea. They say he was the first to discover a land no compass leads to. Oval, elongated, and blurred. The delta of the 30 elephants under an umbrella. The delta where 30 elephants, or thereabouts, take shelter under an umbrella. The delta where 30 elephants, under an umbrella, take their first steps, get food from their mothers, and make their first journey on uncertain legs into the light of dawn.

From the Fes-t’ho com vulguis company.

‘Mans’ ('Hands' in Catalan) is an invitation to go on an adventure to real and fantastical places. To dream. To think. To listen. To smile. The show was created and revolves around the idea of hands: hands give us the freedom to create our own realities. So everything that you see in this performance is done live, right before your eyes, with hands. Recommended ages: 1-5 years

Maüra, Daughter of the Earth

From the Sifó company.

At the beginning of the world, the sky and earth are connected together. One day, Maüra begins to grind some seeds in her mortar. She works harder and harder until her pestle starts to hit the sky with great force. A butterfly, a worm and a bird try to reason with her, but Maüra is too busy to listen to them. ‘Maüra, filla de la terra’ is a visual performance that explains the creation of the sun, moon and stars.
