Garden of Fools


 Energetic and enchanting, Gomito create a darkly comic world entirely out of umbrellas. Experience the extraordinary tale of Melody, a girl afraid of water who discovers that leaves have a mind of their own and gardeners are far from what they seem.

Garden of Fools is a visually stunning medley of the ridiculous and the beautiful. Fast-paced physical acting creates everything from rainstorms to bedside lamps.
