This marvellous puppetry piece is a must do in Paraty. We are avid theatre goers and this exceeded our expectations. The show goes for one hour and is made up of 7 short stories. It is literally breathtaking, almost to the point that it is surreal as the puppet masters make the puppets look like real people from wiping away tears with handkerchiefs to scratching a leg - they come alive before your very eyes. The stories kept short and sweet really captivate and connect with the audience from the flirting between an elderly couple, two young people falling in love to a birth. The puppets and set design is in itself, incredible works of art. There is no dialogue only music, light and sound. The puppet show has been going for 30 years and has been shown in rio to New York. We pre-booked at one of the tour booking agents, which I recommend that you do because we got really good seats! Alternatively you can turn up at 8.30pm when the doors open and buy them at the door. Tickets are 40R each, very reasonably priced and they are the same price if you book through an agency or at the door on the night. Get there 15 minutes early - the show starts at 9pm sharp. Adults only, over the age of 17. Such a breathtaking, moving and incredible artistic performance - a must do.
