O Homem Que Amava Caixas / The Man Who Loved Boxes

Age: 5+

Duration: 50min

Audience Size:

Based on the book by the Australian writer Stephen Michael King, which has already been a best-seller in Brazil. While maintaining a faithful depiction of the author’s universe of images, Artesanal Theater Company chooses to give up on the use of spoken word, and tells the story solely based on the relationship established between the puppet and the mask.


The story is about a lonely, introverted man, who has a hard time in establishing a warm relationship with his son. However, when he sees the possibility of building toys with the boxes he owned as a collection, he finally starts to bond with his boy.
