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 cleaning 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 hypnotist Cat?

This story is a version of the Mallorcan tale "Silly Peter" that the Binixiflat Company has adapted for the puppet theatre.
In every village, there is always one sillier than others. Peter is, they say, the silliest of the village. He talks to the animals, he trusts everyone and everyone laughs at him.
Peter lives with his mother and never does anything properly. That is why they send him on simple errands such as going to sell honey or a piece of clothing. He always makes mistakes and his mother no longer knows what to do.
They laugh at him and try to make fun of him. Maybe things are not always like that and the silly are not as unwise as they seem.

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.
