Project Description

What memories are present in the clothes we wear or in the objects we use during a lifetime? What stories are stored in the drawer? What is hidden in the wardrobe?

World in a Wardrobe is a play based on a very specific object, the wardrobe. This object is a childhood symbol for refuge and a portal to another dimension, capable of attracting the children’s curiosity and of taking them to the universe of imagination.

The play explores fantasy universes through a game with clothes, sheets, stuffed toys and hangers. The result is a vertiginous journey surrounded by grotesque characters, in an acrobatic show with strong visual and magical elements simultaneously.

World in a Wardrobe is a dive in the intimate space, a journey through the individual imagery, surrounded by fears, wishes and dreams.
