MUSIC THEATER OF THE YOUNG THEATER BIEL AND YOUTH SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA BIEL
FRANCOIS CATTIN / ISABELLE FREYMOND / LIONEL ZURCHER
A disoriented whale saves a man by swallowing him and spitting him out on an island somewhere in the Atlantic. On the island, the man meets a gannet - a hungry bird - and a wise-eyed turtle. Together they philosophise about the constantly rising sea level, which makes the island a little smaller every day... In between, two people from Biel tell of their beach holidays in Bibione, the pollution of the Schüss and the last flood on Lake Biel. Dreams and fears are presented in waves. Walin, on the other hand, sets off hopefully for the south of France and on the way encounters an easy-going salmon, an orderly administrative wolffish and a whimsical trout. Too late, the whale realises that she has taken a wrong turn. How did the whale's fateful disorientation come about? From an old portable radio, Radio Seeland repeatedly speaks up and utters all sorts of hair-raising things...
