new show OGRE


Synopsis Pinocchio

Pinocchio is the story of a child, a child free from prejudices and complexes, disobedient and mischievous, yet at the same time naïve. Really naïve. Geppetto, with a father’s instinct, tries to watch over his education. In return, Pinocchio, ever disobedient, is drawn into a series of adventures which will make him grow as a person but will leave him exhausted and very nearly… with a surprising end. This is an interpretation by La Baldufa of the original text by Carlo Collodi.

Paper and wood are employed to create a production which is multifaceted and organic, through which we can dive into the imagination of a child-puppet. A tale which invites us to reflect on values such as education, graft, responsibility and sincerity.
