Carlo Collodi’s tale of a wooden puppet that comes to life called Pinocchio and his creator Geppetto is famous the world over. In this version, the Ensemble der Dinge tell the story starting at the end. While Geppetto is looking for his son Pinocchio, Collodi is looking for an end to his play. When the two of them meet, they get into a quarrel about whether Pinocchio really is alive or if it is all merely theatrical fiction. Amid saws, planes and wood-shavings, we join Pinocchio on a journey into a world full of wonder, happiness and danger. He comes to life devoid of sense or understanding, but with a heart and passion. His adventures see him encounter talking animals, evil figures, a musical fairy and an all-consuming whale. Two puppeteers and a musician take us on a theatrical adventure that speaks about life in all things.
