And the Rain Falls Down

A playful and poetic celebration of water: the water of bath time, the water in the weather, and the water of play.

A performance piece about water, for children aged 3 to 4. And the Rain Falls Down is the second part in a trilogy of projects made for children that are inspired by the rituals and games of everyday life.

The first part, Feast your Eyes, was a modern fairy tale about food, which had at its heart an image of mealtime. The third, Brilliant, is about the deep emotions, the magical imaginings and the secret games that are conjured when the lights go out, when it’s time to go to bed.

Performed on a watertight stage, with drips, trickles, puddles, a fountain, a flooded floor and a lot of rain, And the Rain Falls Down is a playful, visually striking and poetic celebration of water: the water of bath time, the water in the weather, and the water of play.
