Program description:

Tuesday, September 17th; 19.00 h; Zagreb Youth Theatre; 40 minutes; 6+; in English

The audience is taken on a journey into a dreamlike world where houses have legs, wings, or sails to hoist, and they can, therefore, go on trips every night. But one day, a house leaves without its tenant… Thus begins an initiatory quest that combines hand puppets and cartoons in a poetic and humorous universe in search of the lost house. An invented world takes shape and comes to life. Connections are woven between the imaginary and the real, between the animated character and the puppet that embodies it. Throughout the narrative, the projected image is handed over to the tangible object, and vice versa. Thus, the imaginary becomes real, and the real becomes imaginary.

CIE LA NEIGE SUR LES CILS, NANTES, REPUBLIC OF FRANCE

The company was founded and began its construction in Nantes in 2017. Vera Rozanova chose the name Cie La Neige sur les cils (Snow on the Eyelashes Company) because snow, just like a show, is fragile, magical and ephemeral. It amazes us, awakens us, and makes us travel in our thoughts. For each new creation, directed by Vera Rozanova, the company brings together artists from different backgrounds to research intimate questions related to contemporary society’s challenges through puppetry and object theatre.
