Ballon Bandit

A friend for life?

Inti Théâtre (BE)

Tom is alone. His world: a record player, speakers, and some records. Suddenly, a balloon appears. A yellow, floating balloon. Tom talks to the balloon and begins to play and dance with it. By and by he feels less alone in his world. Tom fascinates, touches, and enchants the audience so skillfully that by the end everyone wishes they could trade place with the yellow balloon.

Almost entirely without words, Balloon Bandit tells the story of how the world can open up when we find a friend.

Participatory art mediation programs:
Each child is given a balloon. In addition, pens, strings, adhesive tapes, rhinestones, pipe cleaners, and other craft materials. After the performance of "Balloon Bandit", we will have various supplies from the GZ Buchegg at our disposal to make our own "friend for life". Based on the questions raised by the production, we will discuss the children's meaning of friendship. Have you ever lost a friend? Do you have friendships that are far away? What do you do with your best friend? How do you talk to each other?
