Loo is a hot, dry wind from Asia that comes alive on summer afternoons. The show is a poetic exploration of the changes this wind can cause: moving the desert sand dunes, drying up wetlands and jungles, leaving ships buried in sandy oceans, unable to sail.

Set around the bow of a sunken boat in a sea of sand, the show uses evocative music, buried objects and stunning visual effects, to give its audience a first-hand experience of the destructive effect of this wind... And a chance to understand how and why the Loo blows.

"A spectacle without words, minimalist, poetic and of extraordinary beauty.” Recomana.cat on Ârtica

Funded by Festival El Més Petit De Tots (Sabadell), ICEC-Generalitat de Catalunya, Teatre Sagarra de Santa Coloma de Gramanet and La Sala Teatre Miguel Hernández de Sabadell. With additional support from Acción Cultural Española (AC/E) PICE program.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Loo are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
