Street theatre for children
Amarelinha is an in situ play that takes place behind your house, in your alley. It’s about life, all of life, from birth to death.
The theatre is set around hopscotch, which dictates the unfolding of the play thanks to the puck thrown by the players, each of its squares a different stage of life, from earth to heaven.
Its protagonists are actors, dancers and musicians. To tell the story, they play hopscotch, Statues, with a ball, or The Conquest of the Castle.
Behind it, the performance leaves an alleyway transformed by the game, chalk drawn scenery, laughter and tears filling the balconies.
