We need each other to survive.
This production for children 8 years and older was inspired by the long French novel by Timothée de Fombelle. Suspenseful chases alternate with shadow play, marionettes, and live music or creative projections. The microcosm of a single tree at risk of death unfolds before us, with the nearby grassland haunted by seemingly hostile beings. The main character, Tobias, measures barely two millimeters, which is not much for his age. But nonetheless he must face all of the world. That is, almost all of it. Will Tobias discover who he truly is? Can he save himself and his parents? Above all, will he ever see Elíša again? The small universe is also a universe, with all that entails.
