puppets and stage design: Perrine Ferrafiat, Laura Hallantie, Katharina Muschiol
light design: Marko Kallela
Clown Gelsomina has been left alone by the strong man Zampano. All that is left is Zampano’s coat, suitcase full of scrap, painful memories and luckily also some crazy imagination. This puppet theatre circus has been inspired by Federico Fellini’s film La Strada and Alexander Calder’s circus-performance.
Suitable for everone over 8 years.
duration : 30 minutes
