Children's theatre production "Loo" to present sensorial experience on desertification
     Ponten Pie from Spain will perform "Loo", its award-winning play for children, in January next year. The performance won awards for best kids show at Spain's Lleida Puppet Theatre Fair in 2016 and the European Performing Arts Fair for Children in Gijón, Spain, in 2017.
     This theatrical performance is tailor-made for children aged 2 to 5. Loo is a hot, dry wind from Asia that comes alive in summer afternoons, and the show poetically explores the activities of this wind: moving the desert sand dunes, drying up wetlands, seas and oceans, and leaving ships paralysed in the sand. The performer and the audience are seated on a boat, listening to inspiring music and observing buried objects and stunning visual effects to enjoy a unique sensorial experience on desertification.
     Ponten Pie is a company from Barcelona founded by the actor Sergi Ots. Under his direction, its unusual productions aim to create a unique and authentic world for each stage piece, and directly involve the audience in its stories. Its projects are also characterised by a strong, visually dominated aesthetic, in which different theatre genres are combined.
     Details of the performances are as follows:
January 4 (Friday): 2.30pm and 7.30pm
January 5 (Saturday): 11am, 2.30pm, 4.30pm and 7.30pm
