The two old puppeteers Martha and Arthur have been servants in their youth and now tell the story of Constance: A rich and distinguished girl who is used to getting everything she asks for – until the day she falls asleep in a box and being transported far away to a strange and unknown land.
A touching tale of indulgence and fall – played with dolls, music and vintage objects in a very stately scenography.
“..a beautifully told tale of coming of age, storytelling at a high level.”
