http://www.sebastiano.de/little-big-world-english„LITTLE big WORLD“ is a poetic journey between dream and reality to the small things that are all around us and that are, on closer inspection, capable of telling us whole stories. Things that we sometimes overlook and that only at second glance unfold their cosmos and their magic. By means of video projections, everyday objects and also human bodies or parts thereof, are being magnified and thus turned into playable scenarios. Six dancers and acrobats, accompanied by a seven-member orchestra under the direction of Mark Chaet, sharpen our eyes and ears for a journey of discovery that has as its starting point a quote by Giacomo Leopardi:
“Children find everything in nothing; adults find nothing in everything.”I look inside my little fish tank and see a shark dancing with a woman, I open a drawer and the scissors are marching. My books on the shelf turn into skyscrapers and my mobile phone is one of the windows. A pencil stroke is a street, two strokes the railway tracks, and my old sewing machine is the locomotive. My microcosm at home has two lives: one for which it has been created, the other one what I take it to be. It all fits in my suitcase and I am on my way. 12 musicians, performers, dancers and a singer show us the Little World at large.
