Tinkling Tales And Puppets
The nice Pantufla will show us the funniest creatures of our own dreams. Duckcat, who will discover his own identity; the powerful Mouse King and his daughter who fell in love with a poet or a very special football team.
The youngest will love the colours of the characters, their tenderness and everybody will find out that a pair of legs may become high palm trees or feet may turn into lively chicks. All surrounded by a shaking staging.
1. "THE DUCKCAT AND PRINCESS MONILDA"
This text by Maria Elena Walsh, tells the story of a Duckcat who had been rejected by cats and dogs but finally will find a very peculiar princess and thanks to her he will gain the courage to speak words of love to a beautiful female Duckcat.
2. "MOUSE PRINCESS"
A popular Chinese tale reflects the story of a brave she mouse who is in love with a minstrel. But her love for him is not accepted by her father, the king, who wishes her daughter marries the most powerful and most important creature on earth. Adviced by the Wise Mouse, the king travels round his kingdom to finally understand that nor the sun, the wind, a cloud not even a wall are as powerful as the mouse his daughter is in love with.
