Lithuanian Children and Youth Center suggests to greet the night a bit different – in a theatrical pool! The travellers will take off at an Imagination stop where they will see a underwater performance “Dive”.
Aerial acrobat Salla Hakanpää trades air for water. The performance Dive reverses H. C. Andersen’s classic story Little Mermaid by sending a woman to live underwater. Instead of a mermaid’s steps on ground, human feet hop to the bottom of a deep pool. She exchanges her breath for a submarine world. As she sinks down, her voice is drowned by the water. No witch is needed to make her transform. This bodily tangible fairytale makes the fish laugh and humans gasp for breath.
