Event details

Does "shadow" have a tail?
If you "step on your own shadow," would you feel pain?
Children are always curious about the shadows.
It's like a friend we can't touch.
Lead us to various wonderful worlds of imagination...
 
 
The Spanish multimedia children's play THE SHADOWS THIEF is such a stage work that brings out the imagination of the shadow. An emotionally dark, richly visual fairytale for adults and kids! Malasombra is a tale inspired by Adelbert von Chamisso’s The Wonderful Story of Peter Schlemihl, a romantic novel.
 
 
Synopsis
Sunset, in a forest, a girl and her shadow are dancing and chasing the sunset afterglow. Gradually, darkness fell, Mr. Malasombra was looking for something, and suddenly he began to draw closer to the girl and her shadow. What would happen if this shadow were stolen? How would you feel if your shadow took over your soul and began exploring its own desires and urges? What would you do? How could you get it back? Are self-confidence and friendship with others enough to defeat the evil of the shadowy Mr. Malasombra?
