Introduction and programme
A wonderfully animated journey on the ground, in the air and underwater in a heart-warming family show that combines theatre with the newest technologies: projection, smart LED costume, robot ball and drone. The show won the Best Children Show Award in 2019 in Hungary.
The story takes place in the 21st century, where a robot girl Ann – like Pinocchio – longs to become human. During her wonderful journey on the ground, in the air and underwater she has to face many challenges that help her discover the most important virtues in life. Before the very eyes of the audience the drawn animation comes to life where performers move together with the projected visuals creating a 3D movie experience
The main characters are Alfred the playful inventor and his creature Ann the curious robot girl. The story displays the complexity of their relationship, meanwhile, we can get to know Alfred’s different robots, namely Bip Bip the loyal robot ball together with many fantastic creatures, such as Foot-Mushroom, Lolly-Pot and Hand-Whisk. Alfred gives Ann one task: to collect and bring back home the lost creatures. Due to unexpected difficulties and diverse incredible adventures on their way, they have to evolve and find their way back to each other again.
