Duration: 45 min // M/3
In a distant land full of life and beautiful, there lived a person with a very particular taste: collecting butterflies… But only the red ones! His obsession was such that he kept them in a place protected from potential thieves. One day, on one of his hunts, he gets trapped in a hole. Frightened, he does everything to get out and when he finally did, he noticed that he had lost both legs. Desperately he tries to find them, but in vain. And now how could he walk and jump to catch the butterflies?
This production is an old idea of the company to address the issue of disability, in a real way, but with a sense of hope and struggle to overcome barriers.
