Kaos Theatre Company is a children's theatre company that focuses on embodying the natural world for audiences of all ages. Using live music, dance and sculpture as just a few of its tools for performance, Kaos seeks to create a total theatre in which audience members can immerse themselves and actively participate. "Sal Hepatica" interweaves two separate reinterpretations of the natural world: Letter to a Young Lady in Paris by Julio Cortazar, which tells the story of a man and his demanding bunnies, and our own original tale about a small caterpillar that grows into a butterfly. A set composed exclusively of bookshundreds of them, large and smallshifts to create the two worlds, from an artist's apartment in Argentina to a tiny leaf basking in the white moonlight. As the spirits of tiny animals inhabit the live music and the dancing bodies of the performers, the human and the non-human meld to compose a new, magical world. Kaos aims to create shows that children and adults alike can enjoy, shows that can strike audiences both as pure theatrical spectacle and as deeper musings on the ways we relate to nature. "Sal Hepatica" is an appeal to the wildness within each of us that is asking to come out everyday, to see the world and just play. Show is suitable for family audiences
