Two players explore the phenomena, shape and movements of water. Together they investigate the life and
stories that are in a drop of water.
The old pond.
A frog jumps in -
The sound of water.

Matsuo Bashō (Haiku poet, Japan, 1644-1694)
Splash! There it is, the drop of water.
Why does the drop fall from the top to the bottom?
How does a raindrop feel in the cloud?
What do you do when there is no water coming out of the tap?
And how many drops are in the sea?
Water is simply everywhere, everything starts with it and it can do everything. Water can take on any smell,
any taste, any color. Heat makes it move. The cold makes it freeze. The sun makes it evaporate. It disappears,
but water is never lost. Somewhere it reappears. It is in every pond, every plant, every animal and every
human being. What does a drop of water experience? Maybe it has been in the hump of a camel, extinguished
a fire with the fire department and flown in an airplane with a crate of mangoes. Splash! Have you ever
taken a close look at such a drop?
In their first joint production, players Noriko Seki and Marie Luise Arriens collaborate with director
Antonia Christl to create a poetic, comic play of the everyday and the unbelievable. They were inspired,
among other things, by Maria Terlikowska's children's book "Adventures of a Drop of Water" and Leonardo
da Vinci's writings about water.
