Paramana – Crescent Moon Bear

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.
