About the show: It is an interactive installation and becomes the prologue to the playful show. The dreamlike world filled with images and sounds, and defies the laws of balance by inventing atypical stage objects, has always seduced children, who are demanding and spontaneous spectators. The artists wanted to address a tale that takes shape in a minimalist scenography where they are invited to sit on cushions, at the foot of the trees, to better immerse themselves in their sensations.
