A perfect place to know and have a little fun. Was incredible see how simple and progressive (at the same time) they can touch us. Without words they say a lot. Thank you guys for make me see this show.

The figures are amazing! You get to the point you forget they are being handled by humans :) I was disappointed with the fact that it doesn't have a story! They are small pieces of 3 - 5 minutes each, but they are not related!...More

An amazingly bad way to spend an hour. There were 2 good things: the show only lasted an hour, and the theatre was not unbearably hot. The show consists of 2 actors dressed in black with their faces covered, slowly manipulating small puppets through a...More

Wonderful series of character vignettes told in a theatrical and engaging way. Magical: even when you know it is simply articulated dolls manipulated by two actors, you can't help believing that they are individual characters with deep and meaningful stories to tell. Book early- it's...More

We should confess we did expected more. But it is a very unique Theater, with soul and very strong messages. They are simple, so simple that sometimes borders on the amateurish, but this theater group impresses and thrills for the content of a performance with...More
