Arthur and Marta are two very old puppeteers, who have been together for life. With a magical pavilion as a focal point, they play the story of the poor orphan boy Max, who is being bullied and suppressed - and is always longing to fly. Even when he starts travelling with a circus. But one day he meets the giraffe woman Lily, and the great love that might give him wings…
”FLY” is a puppet theatre drama for the 5 to 10 years olds - a poetic journey into a circus universe with strange characters, big emotions and captivating puppet imagery.
