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!

Routines is a glove puppet show with some of the principal personalities of the traditional repertoire that was for centuries performed all over Europe. A show that can be performed almost anywhere, indoors or out, for young and not so young. A succession of comic sketches or “routines” with hardly any words and skilful manipulation. The main character of this performance is Malic, the adventurer, who on this occasion faces the revolt of anything that comes on stage, be it objects or individuals. Slapstick comedy at its best.
