 “It was night time and everybody was fast asleep, except for one boy who was reading a book. The dark, though the boy, seems to be made specially for reading stories..”  Excerpt from Nine Stories about Love


Meet the man who felt full of rain, the little girl who found a bird, the watering can who didn’t know what love was…. Let yourself be guided on a poetic journey through a landscape of stories, where dreams and inner thoughts of human and natural world are intertwined. This show is about love, connection and belonging, to each other and the world around us. 

Adapted from the book, ‘Nine Stories about Love’ by Giovanna Zoboli and Ana Ventura, it incorporates performance, puppetry and shadow play.

Suitable for children aged 5-9 years and grownups

In collaboration with Dog and String Theatre

Devised by Manuela Corbari, Sarah Fuller, Vanessa Maguire, Ionia Ni Chroinin and Johanne Webb

Developed with the support of Galway City Council, Roscommon Arts Centre HATCH programme, O'Donoghue Centre NUIG and Grow - Pathway to Production partners:


Il mondo rotondo.. the world is round and full of wonderful things to be discovered.

A place so rich in colors and sounds, where the simple things of everyday life become amazing and magical if observed through children’s eyes.

A place where seeds can fall from the sky, just like water. Where shadows can have a life of their own and imagination can run free, if you just look out the window.

Il mondo rotondo is inspired by children wonder in discovering the world around them in the first few years of their life. The natural cycles of day and night, silence and sound, the discovery of shadows, and how things change and transform.

A world made of simple words, objects, images and sounds.


A magical journey for young children and the child in every adult.


Age: 1 to 4 years old and grown ups
