“One elephant went out to play upon a spider’s web one day he had such enormous fun, that he called for another elephant to come...”
If an elephant can swing on a cobweb thread, then anything can be possible.
An elephant rocking… it’s a strange story maybe true or maybe not...
A story full of possible and impossible things, and impossible things that become possible as it happens in the dreams.
It is the story of a dream where the city changes and the sky gets full of toy balloons, while the moon appears. Low-rises of strange shapes, and very high skyscrapers among which a cobweb is tense: two elephants are rocking and singing on it but suddenly it breaks.
Thus began the search for a new thread, because the spider is tired of seeing its threads broken down, one by one, by the rocking elephants.
A dream that is filled with unexpected encounters: the two balancing elephants, the spider, the little man with a megaphone, the green dressed cat and his yellow truck, the little mouse with a long pink tail that wants to eat some lunar cheese, the bear and the kangaroo chasing each other with a tricycle, laughing and looking for a thread that doesn’t exist, the rabbit with a hat and the scooter... duration: 35’
