A SHADOW PLAY BASED ON MEXICAN FOLKTALES
Behind the illuminated shadow screen, colorful shadow puppets come to life and tell the story of The Green Bird. A drum roll and a cymbal crash, the calliope sound of a button accordion, and the play begins: A boy is transformed into a fortune-telling bird by a magician. A brave girl journeys through Mexico to save him. In her travels, she encounters fantastic characters and scenes from Mexico's rich folkloric tradition. Colorful and intricate shadow puppets combine with live music, voices and sound effects to create a delightful family entertainment.
