Duration: 60 minutes
Ages: 7+

In a world as harsh as it is fragile, made of paper, Quixote and Sancho are seeking new adventures. The imagination of the frail knight comes into play: colourful, epic and with shadow puppetry! But Quixote’s beliefs are too strong... Everywhere, people call him crazy.

Follow a clownish duo, in search of glory. A play that asks: should we cling to a zany reality, or let ourselves be carried away by foolish dreams?

Ombres Folles, the contemporary shadow and object theatre company, presents an ingenious show freely inspired by the novel The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha by Miguel de Cervantes.
