We are a theater company that focuses its research on objects and materials with young audiences in mind.
The metaphor is our essential question. We try to dialogue with materials, with objects, to look for different meanings for profound topics. We believe that a fundamental right of childhood is the artistic experience and the contemplation of beauty.
