Grupo Sobrevento (Brazil): A Cortina da Babá

A dream-like world waits patiently while Babá sews. As she dozes in the lamplight, the animals behind the curtain slowly awaken and begin their magical journey towards the town of Millamarchmantopolis.

Based on the short story Nurse Lugton’s Curtain that Virginia Woolf wrote for her niece, this beautiful shadow puppetry performed by four actors/puppeteers with an original soundtrack.

“ A masterclass of puppetry, light and film. Excellent.” São Paulo Guide (Brasil)
