VAI VIA

Poetic and musical story about life's ups and downs

Experience a wordless and musical story about the woman Rita, whose life story unfolds in a wordless, poetic and musical story for children and young people. Vai via is a new co-production by Xirriquiteula Teatre (Catalonia) and ZeBU.

The performance uses mimicry, whimsical objects and lots of music to tell the moving life story. Rita is an old woman who lives on the street in a converted double bass box. In the box she hides an alarm clock, her dentures and a picture of her children. Every night she kisses them goodnight before going to sleep in the safe cavity of the double bass box. During the day she trudges around the streets of the big city, and although she is often scolded and chased away, she never gives up hope of finding a quiet place to sleep at night.

How did she end up there, why do you always see her with a smile on her face, what was her life like? And is it true that she was once the country’s most famous female jazz double bassist?

ONE EVENING I SAW AN OLD LADY IN TOWN WITH A HUGE BOX ON HER BACK. I ASKED: ISN’T IT SAD TO LIVE ON THE STREET?

THEN SHE TOLD ME HER LIFE STORY.
