This listing is from a previous year. Search for current listings.
A show from Italy's Compagnia TPO, employing unique technology and captivating projections to tell the story of some adventurous sheep exploring a landscape of elves and trolls. Ages 6+.
In Icelandic 'Kindur' means 'sheep'. Travel with them on their journey and join their adventurous flock!
A show dedicated to Iceland, an island infused with a fairytale-like atmosphere, as seen through the eyes of its adventurous sheep.
Iceland is a country where every natural element seems animated by mysterious forces: from the white of its glaciers to the northern lights, from geysers to the rumble of gigantic waterfalls.
After being locked inside for the cold season, our protagonist sheep embrace their freedom and set off on a journey into this remote landscape, to visit its 'hidden' inhabitants, the elves and trolls.
Using fantastic technology and captivating projections, Compagnia TPO bring this mystical world to life.
Every child attending will wear a special woollen heart that lights up when it is time to take an active part in the show. At some points children will be invited on stage in small groups, but when all the hearts light up, it's time to be together.
'a highly interactive and metaphorical journey in which the youngest viewers, and in this case, even consenting adults, are known to interact with the landscape and its inhabitants' My MEDIA - Osservatorio di Cultura Digitale.
