Two curious travelers go around and discover suspended and luminous worlds. Worlds that turn and bring you night and day, small worlds that become big. Worlds made of looks and games. Girotondo is a show with circular motions, constantly changing, with music and magical, playful images. It is a journey for amazed and curious eyes through suspended worlds that can be observed as we all fall down with our nose up in the air.

From the leading creators of theatre for the very young comes a playful and delicate discovery of rolling and bouncing, wandering, and spinning using dance, music, and poetic moments of friendship.

Winner of the Michel Indali Award for Best Performance at the 2017 edition of Kolibri Évadnyitó Fesztivál – Budapest

This is the third time this wonderful company has played at the WeeFestival. Previous production include The Boat and the Moon (2014) and Under a Different Light (2016).
