Patufet

Patufet is a very, very small boy. So small that he sleeps in a tin of sardines and hides under a cabbage leaf. So small that his parents are afraid that if he goes out into the street, people will not see him and ... chaf! But he is also very clever, brave and stubborn! This morning, when he got up, Patufet was absolutely sure; today will be a day full of adventures!

Greta the Mouse... that swept the staircase.

Greta is a mouse, and a great artist; she juggles, swings from the trapeze, walks the tightrope and... sweeps the theatre. While passing the broom under the stage one night after the show, she finds a coin! Her friend, Rinaldo, a member of the backstage crew, advises her to buy a pretty bow to put on her tail, but Greta is determined: she will use it to produce a great show! Today is the day of the auditions to determine which animal will be her partner on stage. Will it be the ventriloquist Cock? Or the Pig visual arts performer? Or perhaps the Dog flea circus owner? Or perhaps the Donkey Magician? Or will she fall into the claws of the mentalist Cat? Buy your tickets here.

The king and the sea

“Ghosts don’t exist”, said the king to the ghost. “And I thought kings didn’t exist”, replied the ghost. “Well then one of us is mistaken”, said the king. “It seems so”, said the ghost, and so he started the ghost’s party. A shy king who wishes to rule, a restless squirrel, a cat who is a sun worshiper, a crazy dog, the sea, the clouds… and the tea time ghost. The king wants to impose himself on the natural elements and discovers ordering and obeying aren’t that important. Adapted from Heinz Janisch´s story: “Der König und das Meer”, illustrated by Wolf Erlbruchand editedby Lóguez Ed. Trailer

Pipa, the wonderful puppet

A puppet show by Nestor Navarro. A new puppet arrives at La Puntual to surprise and tickle the whole family. His name is Pipa, from Barcelona, but, because he has travelled widely he´s a bit from everywhere. Puppets from other countries have inspired him for many years. What he doesn´t know is that he will fall in love with Nina, and will have to go through the ordeals to achieve the first kiss. A crazy, sometimes surreal and tender comedy for puppets. Trailer
