The well-known story of a traveller, Captain Lemuel Gulliver, in new original version. Fantastic events and encounters with various beings from other worlds offer a satirical view of our everyday reality. We can look forward to incredible adventures that this ship´s doctor will experience with the small inhabitants of Lilliput, Brobdingnag giants, with the scholars on the flying island of Laputa, and finally with the wise horses of Houyhnhnms.
Jonathan Swift’s satirical novel, the Gulliver's Travels (1726), this literary masterpiece inspired us to play with proportions using various forms of puppets, masks and theatrical depictions.
The production is inspired by an idea of meeting opinions, attitudes and customs that are distant from us is beneficial and can be fun. This idea is interpreted here clearly for the child viewer and with an overlap for the parents.
