In dreams, freedom flies with more wings13443236_1157709164297064_9151213130555714547_o

Freely adapted from the tale O Elephant of the Brazilian author Bartolomeu Campos de Quieros, Elefantinho is a theatre performance suitable both for adults and children. Through a playful and poetic balance of scenic languages such as shadow theatre, dance and movement research, singing, live music and storytelling both in English and Italian language, Elefantiho deals with the themes of self-confidence and the overcoming of the obstacles, that often are the result of our own fears.

Fears like those of Margherita, a young girl who doent sleep at night, after losing her friend Elefantinho, a small elephant whom she met one night in a dream and suddenly he decided to reach his size, forcing even Margherita to downsize her dream, not large enough to hold a real elephant.

The story is narrated by two clumsy pirates, Adam and Midi, also creatures of Margheritas dream, who shall help her to accept her fears and through a series of adventures, they will finally succeed to make her believe in dreams again and recognise their necessity in the understanding of reality.
