The Soil is the skin of the Globe
Terra is our planet. Terra means earth in Latin. The Globe. The soil can be said to be the skin of the globe. The living skin of the planet. We can not live without soil. But what do we really know about it? About life in the dark earth? In a teaspoon of soil there are a million bacteria. The earth is not quiet and dead. It is full of life. Full of conversations between plants, fungi and insects. They do not speak our language, but we have begun to understand what they say to each other.
In The Soil is the skin of the Globe we look playfully at our planet. We follow three actors who travel to create a non-mainstream performance, for who is really the most important character in the world? The worm or the ant? How in the world can you make a performance of earth? With humor, music, adventures and strange characters the show grows.
