YEAR : 2016 AUDIENCE : 3-8 DURATION : 40´
Based on the Oscar Wilde short story
The Elefante Elegante Theatre Company presents a small format show meant for libraries intended for children from 3 to 8 years old.
The story is told and accompanied with gestures and the constant presence of music.
“The Giant” is a story that brings together comedy and poetry; the strength of the spoken word and the eloquence of the body movement; the plasticity of object manipulation and the setting evolution.
A long, long time ago, in a distant kingdom, a man decided to go on a journey. He walked, walked and walked… until he found a wonderful garden and he decided to stay. But one day a Giant appeared and he wanted the garden only for him. The man who one day decided to go on a journey, escaping from the Giant, found a very special tree. From its branches sprouted leaves, flowers, fruits… and books, lots of books.
