Is it a metaphor? A poetic journey? An oniric suggestion? Perhaps the "Magic Piper" is a little bit of everything. Because of their specific language, marionettes have a life of their own, hence the re-elaboration of the famous tale by the Grimm brothers with more complex dramaturgic situations and new characters. All in all, marionettes regain here their old satirical function as keen commenters of historical events and of social changes in the past. This satirical role goes side by side with the poignant need of nostalgia, of melancholy, of poetry evoked by these moving "objects/creatures": their novelties lie in both features and roles. They become a projection of fantasizing about places, sounds, and actions; they wear flamboyant coloured costumes in order to be THE "actors" onstage. A good number of subtle cues is offered for discussion about all of us, about times long past, in an undertone, as befits this miniature world, midway between dreams and thoughts.
