Two ssslippery characters live in a very ssslippery world. Shlooooop! They just lost their balance! Plonk! They just missed a footing! But then they slide smoothly along the slick surfaces all right. Ssslip is a performance for children and their guardians where physicality is the stimulus for a fascinating adventure. They will be immersed in this poetic exploration of stability and instability, driven by a desire to encourage play and risk in young audiences. Ssslip is a spectacular theatrical experience combining the physical, the visual and the musical in a way that makes it impossible to Ssslip your mind so easily.

Żewġ karattri tassew jiżŻżerżqu jgħixu f’dinja verament tiżŻżerżaq. Bummmm! Tilfu l-bilanċ! Plonk! Sieqhom ġiet ħażina! Iżda mbad jiżżerżqu fuq l-art lixxa mingħajr problemi. ‘Ssslip’ hija rappreżentazzjoni għat-tfal u għall-gwardjani tagħhom, fejn il-fiżikalità tkun l-istimolu għal avventura affaxxinanti. L-udjenza se tidħol f’din l-esplorazzjoni poetika tal-istabilità u tal-instabilità, immexxija minn xewqa li jiġi inkoraġġut il-logħob u r-riskju fl-udjenzi ż-żgħar. ‘Ssslip’ hija esperjenza teatrali spettakolari li tgħaqqad il-fiżiku, il-viżwali u l-mużika b’mod li jagħmilha impossibbli li moħħok jiżżerżaq ’il bogħod minnha.
