Mariel – the girl who understood the speech of water is a contemporary dance piece for over 3 years old children. It deals with the issues such as relationship between human and nature as well as the understanding of differencies.
“The performance is not scary instead the undertone is gently humorous. Heidi Masalin’s choreography is alive and rich in nuances. Movement, gestures, sound and light create well-balanced work of art.”
