A tiny universe
with a small being,
in the tallest tree in the forest.
The body is small,
the wings are even smaller.
Utopia is great.
Ornithopters are machines that mimic the flight of birds.
Onirotóptero is a micro event of miniature puppets.
For 7 minutes, Oniro struggles to devise the escape from his refuge.
Onirotóptero is a puppet show on the line of the Lambe-Lambe theater, presented to only one or two people at a time for approximately 7 minutes. The setting is a traveling box that can be in any space. Spectators are invited to sit on small benches with headphones, closely linked to the performance and the puppeteer, in this work without words and dedicated to all audiences.
Trupe Fandanga was born in Porto in 2014 and makes its first presentation at a WIP of the Porto Puppet Festival with Botequim. It aims to be a research space in the construction and manipulation of puppets and objects. He seeks to work the puppet outside the conventional space of representation and has a special affection for intimate and small-scale shows.
