Imagine a world where every drop of water has a life of its own ...
A world where rainbows form from umbrellas, where fountains spout from plug-holes, and where eventually the rain really does fall down.
And the Rain Falls Down was inspired by the daily rituals of a child’s life. The show grew from ideas about playing with water while having a bath, and developed into a piece all about the joys of drips, drops, fountains, puddles and rain.
Performed with very few words, striking images, and 40 gallons of water, it is a playful, musical and rule-breaking show created especially for 3- and 4-year-olds.
And the Rain Falls Down is a celebration of the watery things in the world.
A co-production by Fevered Sleep and Fuel, the show toured the Lakeside Arts Centre, Nottingham; Young Vic, London; mac, Birmingham, Bristol Old Vic, Bristol; and Unity Theatre, Liverpool, 16 February - 16 April 2011.
