This show is dessigned to be represented with direct contact with the public, whether if it is oudoors, indoors or without a stage. The proximity and the comunication with the characters is such developped that they could even be touched.
Every movement, every glance, every step from this puppets are considered with a deep presition. The aim to seduce the public, and getting them to think that the life that there is inside them is real and their flosses are mere fiction.
From puppets with a perfect contruction linked to long years of work in the manipulation an interpretation with the floss technique, big doses of poetry can be obtained, with the capability to create highly emoted sentiments to the public.
This is an experimental work which carries us to think about forgotten landscapes, where our oniric memories from our origins inhabit.
