The show

The protagonist of this play is a little pig. A little pig who wants to fly high in the sky to see the world from up above. Chasing his dream, one day he decides to say goodbye to the fence that has deprived him of his freedom and he escapes to experience new adventures. Under the light of the moon, he’ll follow a narrow path surrounded by trees and animals, while wondering about where he’ll be able to find a new home so he can live quietly in the company of a friend or two…

This Chinese shadow play is full of emotions, poetry and values such as self-improvement, the determination to achieve personal goals, respect, understanding and the correct treatment of animals, who not only keep us company but also teach us many important things as well.

Don’t miss the premiere of this children’s show at Poble Espanyol, and come have a great weekend with children in Barcelona.
