“Lullaby for the Earth” is an interactive musical movement performance for children over 3 years of age. The performance uses language understandable to children and explains the problems of Earth pollution, its reasons and outcomes: littering, air pollution, animal extinction, global warming, excessive rainfalls and others. How to help the Earth? The creators of the performance offer the symbolic actions of soothing and comforting the Earth. They are expressed through lullabies chosen from different countries of the world and performed in their original language. There is no coherent plot in the performance, no story to be conveyed through words and no specific characters. There is no moralizing either! Lullaby for the Earth is an interactive performance, during which the actors communicate directly with the audience not from the stage, but inviting them to their acting space, and in each stage, offering different actions-games.
