It all starts with the earth, this huge, big lump of earth. Things are made of earth. You can shape and form them. Is that a ball or is it a head? Clay creates images associated with the beginning of life: people emerge and animals, a village! A ball becomes a head, a fish turns into a bird: but as soon as things can be created they can also decay. In this play for audiences aged 2 and over, clay interacts with sounds, there are noises and notes, kneading and shaping.

The director Barbara Kölling specialises in theatre for the very youngest audiences. She has run Helios Theater for 30 years and the company has been based in Hamm since 1997.
