Mime Wave (NL)

Through animated paintings and complementary music, children are submerged in a fairytale-like world. They meet Anastasiia and her dog Djonnik. When a storm swallows up their house, they have to look for a new one. A house where they can feel at home again. During their journey through many different landscapes, they meet all kinds of animals. Could they live with one of their animal friends? The giraffe’s home is much too big, the pinguin’s house much too cold, but they do not give up! Finally, they find a house where they feel at home. Do you want to know how? Come and travel along with Anastasiia and Djonnik. Together you will discover their new home! After the show, the children from the audience are invited to draw their own dream homes on stage. This production is inspired by creator Anastasiia Liubchenko’s personal story. She left her house in Ukraine to find a new home in the Netherlands.
Anastasiia Liubchenko founded Mime Wave. A theater company, based in Amsterdam, that makes performances, the Mime Wave Festival and has educational programs. With Mime Wave Kids she performs for young children from two years of age. Anastasiia studied pantomime and director of animation in Kyiv (Ukraine) and later mime at the AHK Theater School in Amsterdam (The Netherlands). She has participated in many productions for children and adults both as a performer and artistic leader and she is also a keen painter. Her interest in the visual often shines through in her stage works. Yellow, for example, was inspired by the shades of this colour that Vincent van Gogh used in his paintings. Anastasiia’s own paintings and her theatre productions are full of imagination, humour and a wish to put things into perspective, often touching on social issues and the strong emotions they involve.
