PIPA, puppet show.

Category: Show Related artist: La Puntual

PIPA* does not want a quiet and peaceful life, he wants to play, to have fun, to fall in love, to live life … But he will find a world full of surprising characters: Mister Tofol and his selfie stick, Nina and her ice cream, the Banker and his machine, and even with a very hungry crocodile and its bubbles. It is a crazy, often surreal and tender comedy for puppets.
(*“Pipa” means sunflower seed in Spanish. The hero of our show owes its name to the famous piece of Ai Wei Wei “Sunflower Seeds” (exhibited in the Tate Modern, 2010). A work composed of 100 million handmade porcelain sunflower seeds; where each sunflower seed represents the individual and its freedom, and the whole set of seeds represent the people, capable of transforming things.)
