Created, directed and performed by Valeria Guglietti.
Premiered in Barcelona, La Puntual, theater dedicated to puppetry, Festival de Reys 2008
Through the ancient art of Chinese shadow puppetry, the spectator is able to see how various images and stories from the world of the circus are created and unmade. It is a work of transformations, metamorphoses, surprises and tenderness that captivates the audience with its craftsmanship and immediacy, which seem exotic in this modern, information filled age in which we live.
This piece is performed, directed and designed by Valeria Guglietti.
