AN-KI is an immersive theater experience in a living space that invites you to discover every nook and cranny, every secret, where you not only listen and watch, but move, touch and feel. In 2022 it premiered at Lleida International Puppet Theatre Fair, and was awarded Best Show of the Puppet Fair; Best Show by the International Jury Puppet Fair; Best Show by the National Jury of the Puppet Fair; Best Show by Street Jury of the Puppet Fair.
AN-KI offers a poetic journey in which the puppet and object show is enriched by a sensory journey within the enveloping space of the small Ortiga chapiteau. The audience will walk through a miniature city, walking into the subconscious of the protagonists to understand their secrets, illusions and fears. They will enter the forest to listen to the voice of the trees.
Small experiences, which will test their senses and intuition, participating in the events of the story, where they will also be protagonists. The poetics of the play opens up the imagination and curiosity of each spectator, who will find themselves reflecting on the environmental and social situation we are living, and will be able to question the imprint we all leave on the earth.
