5 years and up

A poetic puppet theater drama for ages 5 and up.

Arthur and Marta are two very old puppeteers who have been together all their lives. With a magical pavilion as a focal point, they play the story of the poor orphan boy Max, who longs to fly. All alone in the world, Max has to go through a lot, humiliated in the orphanage and exploited in the circus. Until he meets the giraffe woman Lily and the great love that might give him wings…

“FLY” takes the children on a journey of experience into a poetic clown and puppet theater universe with quirky characters, great emotions and magical images.

A differently told story about bullying and oppression, and about – in the end – daring to take the leap to freedom and love.

.. a beautiful, sensitive and deeply nostalgic performance for the school starters … absolutely improbably wonderful.
