At the Smock Alley Theatre, Dublin – Tickets: €9 available on www.smockalley.com
Rime insaponate – Soapy Rhymes is centred upon the most ineffable, evocative, delicate, surreal and playful object: the soap bubble. This ancient game becomes a playscript which mixes rhyming words with an original technique to make bubbles and a little bit of magic.
A genuine show, created to dream. The Bubble Poet will blow delicate rhymes to stir an archaic sense of wonder in the spectators thanks to soap bubbles.
As if animated by the lines themselves, bubbles of all kinds will generate a surreal dance, which will transport the audience into a magical world of shimmering lights and reflections.
A luminous and illuminating experience: families and children can enjoy it, but also utopian realists and practical dreamers of all ages.
Suitable for ages 5 and up (younger children welcome)

For Alekos Ottaviucci bubbles are not only an instrument of artistic expression, but also a life changing experience. During a sabbatical period from medical studies, he started backpacking around the world, bringing anywhere he went his beloved soap bubbles, thus discovering the wonders of a street performer’s life. Having soap bubbles as his main companion during 3 years, he explored the precious messages hidden inside the most oneiric toy of the world, and started studying acting and writing poems to share this ancient wisdom with kids and adults, in Italy and abroad.
