This is the story of Bulle, a child who thought, like the rest of us, that water was an unlimited resource. But one day, Water gets angry with mankind and decides to disappear, refusing to flow from taps and vanishing from a goldfish bowl. The unfortunate goldfish leaves a note to say “It’s impossible for me to live here..I’m off to find the great lake of Tank-Yana-Sava.”
Bulle heads out on an adventure in search of Water and her goldfish. This piece by Thierry Vincent gracefully steers its course through a contemporary tale, in keeping with the fresh and poetic world so typical of the Nice BAL theatre company. This moving odyssey gently brings us face to face with an unavoidable topic: Man’s relationship with Nature. Together, the young and less young find themselves on an enchanting journey along childhood byways.
In his play, Thierry Vincent expresses his concern about the issue of water as a resource on the planet and seeks to “use art to create awareness.” Lusine Jeither, La Strada
