ARTESANAL Cia. de Teatro


The Legend of the Prince who had a Face

This production makes no use of the spoken word, and its action develops itself through the actors' movements and recorded narration, mixing up many genres – masks, puppets, and video graphics - alongside a soundtrack by Sergei Prokofiev.
The play transits between Gothic and surrealist aesthetics, telling the story of a prince born with a face, in a land of faceless people. The prince is kept in a tower because the King and the Queen fear that if anyone finds him, he would be mistreated by the population.
Zilka Sallaberry Theatre for Children Award / 2013 - Best Play, Best Costume Design, and Best Light Design.
