The show is based on the Japanese story Tsuki no Waguma, -The Crescent Moon Bear.
By using three dimensional shadow theatre techniques, an originally hand-made projector, live narration and live electronic music we travel back in time to the Trench War and to its irreversible consequences. “The Crescent Moon Bear” is a dark fairy tale for teenagers that talks about courage and persistence, loss and pain, life and death, sensibility and love, and moreover it talks about a little child’s adventurous journey trying to save her father’s soul.
Live narration in greek, english, french and italian.
For both children and adults.

There are things that can be seen only through the eyes of a soldier. It is only he that knows what it is like…he and his loved ones who long for him to return…
