An adventurous performance featuring puppets from the incredibly vast collection of Teatro Verde, in a flow of poetic, funny and touching scenes. Tickets

Teatro Verde is a theater entirely dedicated to kids and youth since 1986, which became an irreplaceable reference for children, teens, schools and families in Rome. The proposed performances always involve the participation of the public and use a mix of techniques—actors, puppets, juggling, shadows, projections. They often deal with social issues and prioritize music, colors and emotions. Teatro Verde also offers theater laboratories—for adults, children, and people with disabilities—parties, performed readings, outdoor performances; they produce books and videos, host exhibitions, organize festivals and other activities dedicated to kids. Theater is encounter. Theater is relationships. Theater is dialogue. Theater is a language, and as such is best to learn it from a young age.
