The Little Things

A La Mecànica and Teatre Principal de Palma coproduction

With the collaboration of Ajuntament de Palma, Teatre de Capdepera and

Institut d'Indústries Culturals de les Illes Balears

The Little Things started life as a show for children, but rapidly transformed into a sassy and fast-moving performance for their parents, that is seen by children and adults on two very different levels.

Born from a view of the world as seen at knee-height, by children, and the world they discover, The Little Things transforms from the innocence of a hungry caterpillar into a majestic butterfly, exploring and dazzling the world.


Using puppetry and dance, physical theatre and music, it blends the comic directness and sincere naivety of childhood with the often absurd struggle of parents to be great role-models whilst also stretching to keep the very grown-up pleasures and releases of adult life.

This is a riotous, fresh and inspiring piece of physical theatre for anyone who is a child, has ever been a child or has children in their lives.
