Yellow will take the audience on a journey to a world where everything is yellow. That is no understatement, even the cushion you sit on during the play is yellow. Yellow is the color of the sun, but also the color of happiness. Anastasiia Liubchenko brings a variety of yellow inhabitants to life through mime. The play also contains live music by Thijs Felperlaan and Yung Tuan-Ku. The three performers collectively shape the city into something beautiful, life appears perfect in the yellow city. That is until an entirely new color appears: blue. This is a color that is unknown to the yellow people. And the struggle between yellow and blue seems inevitable. But then something unexpected happens…
Age Range: 2 to 6 years old. Produced by Stichting 2-ater/Mime Wave.
