The hare and the turtle

“Get ready to relive the most famous race in history”

Street shows

In The hare and the turtle we look at a popular story to make it live in the streets of towns and cities. We put the reality of mythical characters in front of people’s eyes and convert the audience and their everyday space into protagonists. The show wants to explain the well-known fable of Aesop and share it with people passing through the street. The hare and the turtle are half mechanical, half real. Each character travels in a vehicle that is a kind of alterego, a mechanical puppet on which the actors move.

Synopsis: Get to your town or city Aesop Martínez de la Vega, justice of the peace and mediator arbitrator, to relive the fable that explained his distant past. He wants the hare and the turtle to play a race again to, once and for all, understand what happened and reconcile the two characters. For this, he will have the help and collaboration of the public, an active part of the story and an indispensable member to resolve the conflict.
