NTNG Puppet Theatre
The gift is given and love is offered
After many years, a puppet show will be part of the programme of The National Theatre of Northern Greece.
It is a show of object theatre, a contemporary form of puppet theatre in which the objects come to life through their symbolic and utilitarian nature, substituting the traditional puppets. The puppeteer is visible to the audience, while he is not only operating the puppet, but is also actively involved in the action. The text is the result of collective creation of the whole group and emerges through rehearsals.
This summer the NTNG travels to the neighbourhoods of the city and the peripheral municipalities but also to festivals with a versatile puppet theatre-object theatre show, addressed to children and adults.
In the show entitled “The Gift”, we follow the adventure of a scavenger trying by all means to give his child the gift he promised. With the help of a friend, he will seek a solution in the world of “waste” materials. The old objects will come to life and then change into animals, humans and in whatever our imagination allows us. Will he be able to give his daughter the much desired gift? To fulfill the promise he gave her? What is the real value of the gift? Is the gift given? What role does love play in all this? Can love be offered as a gift?
", a show with live music, which approaches a sensitive social issue, with humour and sensitivity.
