A very intimate setting , interesting show and kept us entertained the whole time. The bath washing scene was out favorite . It is a small, dark and very quiet setting, very unique and nice unless...

Beautiful stories told with an amazing set of old time puppets. Emotional and dramatic, they will make you feel the full array of emotions from happiness and laughter to extreme sadness and unexpected shock and a definite when in paraty. Appropriate for singles, couples and families... fully recommended.

FANTASTIC show! Simple but so exquisitely different and delicate. The puppets are made to perfection and the manipulators make them seem so incredibly life like! Make sure you book ahead at a tourist shop ( we booked with the one behind the church with the plaza in the old town) it costs R40 each. Our hostel was selling them for... More

This marvellous puppetry piece is a must do in Paraty. We are avid theatre goers and this exceeded our expectations. The show goes for one hour and is made up of 7 short stories.

Wonderful series of character vignettes told in a theatrical and engaging way. Magical: even when you know it is simply articulated dolls manipulated by two actors, you can't help believing that they are individual characters with deep and meaningful stories to tell. Book early- it's an intimate theatre and it was full.

We should confess we did expected more. But it is a very unique Theater, with soul and very strong messages. They are simple, so simple that sometimes borders on the amateurish, but this theater group impresses and thrills for the content of a performance with strong emotional content. Worth it.

The puppeteer use puppets to tell a story in a series of short plays. The puppets movements mimic human gestures and actions; appearing very life like. Two of the vignettes contain adult content. It is a very petite theater of approx. 50 seats; reservations recommended.
