Intention: connecting to nature, sensory stimulation
We enter with a big, colourful umbrella.
Our initial connection involves drawing attention to this colourful object, activating interest, and initiating the topic of rain.
To build our play, we start by creating the soothing sounds of nature, including the gentle rustle of the wind and the patter of raindrops.
We incorporate soft rhythm instruments to enhance the experience.
Gradually, we open the spacious umbrella and extend an invitation to the audience to come underneath it.
Beneath the unbrella, we listen to the sounds of the rain, creating them by gently tapping our fingers on the umbrella’s surface.
Based on the reactions we observe, the clowns respond with emotions and impulses that resonate with the audience’s engagement, fostering a shared and immersive experience.
This activity is best suited for individual or very small group interactions.
The sound of the rain awakens an emotional memory, which can be a very intimate and sensitive action.
We remain acutely sensitive and aware of the reactions this evokes, ensuring that our play maintains a soft and intimate quality, preserving the emotional connection with the audience.
