Patufet (and His Parents)

“He will be a normal child like others, but very small, thin and skinny”.

All audiences

This adaptation of the popular Catalan folktale, a favourite of the little ones, makes a nod to the world of today. In our version, we present a set of new and overprotective parents with their child. It is a text written in sharp and lively verse, with touches of humour and tenderness. Inspired by the Catalan tradition that gave birth to this character but from an updated, modern and global perspective. En Patufet (i els seus pares) features original music and compositions by Pep López. A show that uses humour to connect the traditional tale with the obsessions of today.


“There was once a lovely couple who liked to sing, he sang, she sang…” One day this couple decided to enter the world of motherhood and fatherhood, and they did so with joy and excitement. Instantly, however, an unexpected event filled them with suffering: the child was born very, very small.
