Chinese Cooking Classes

Chinese Tales

With no stage, with no costumes and scenery, how do the storytellers, those virtuos of the ancient art of narration, enchant! A storyteller of our land, heard the story of the Chinese storytellers and decided that tales can’t be missing from a Chinese fest. So, she brought her own art and started wandering around the village. And what stories does she have to tell?

Great Invisible Powers (puppet theatre performance for 3 spectators by alaluz shadow puppet theatre)

The world’s smallest theatre creates a microcosm in a mysterious magic box and invites you to take a peek at Chinese superstitions. We don’t know if 3 is a fateful number, but this tiny theatre has only this number of seats and its spectators change again and again! 
A few-minute performance for three spectators inspired by the “caja lambe-lambe” technique, also known as “caja magica” or “caja misteriosa”, which comes from another side of the world, Brazil.
* The performance will take place at the Museum’s main hall, with a reduced entrance fee: 3 €)
