Otto learns to fly” at Rainbow Serpent Festival!!!
“Pigsy, Nanny and Old Pete“
Through these two terms that do not usually go together, ugly and cute Im looking to awaken the “Empathy”.
Fear of the unknown is transformed into sensitivity, things we need on these days.
“Otto learns to fly.”
Otto has a dream, he wants to fly…
But bears can’t fly… can they?
Otto learns to fly showcases MagicLantern Studio’s exquisitely crafted hand puppets and “ready mades” in the Magic Lantern Travelling Puppet Theatre. Then the action explode onto a much larger scale with Sanctum Theatre’s giant body puppets.
The show leaves us the idea that anything is possible if you really want.
Is an interactive children’s entertainment ideal for out doors festivals as well as in door events.
