Resume of the show
“A button in my head”, is the first work of the Company, It mixes a traditional technique like the Glove puppet with a renewed dramaturgical and scenic aproach; an original, universal and philosophical proposal that is moving towards a new Puppet Theatre. With this concern, the poetic creation was born in the beginning of 2oo9, as an open question that has found the answer in itself. The Dramaturgy, the Realization of Puppets and Objects and the Creation of the characters, were built simultaneously by ourselfs, in a dialectical and autopoietic process that continues till today. Throughout 7 years of artistic itinerancy, the work finished growing with the most diverse audiences and stages, and thanks to the sharp eyes of some Masters of this millenary art. "A button in my head" has made more than 600 presentations in 10 countries in Latin America and Europe, and It has participated in 51 International Puppet , Theatre and Arts Festivals in 9 countries in two continents.
In the dance of creation, Hands give birth to the first puppet of the story: Clott.
One of them is green, it moves like a snake and it does not want the creation be alive. So, it takes the head of the newborn and throw it very hard, broking it into two half heads...
Since that day, a red button hints from Clott's head. A button that holds him together, but that makes him feel different from the others. His sister Juana and his best friend Luchito, bother him. He only finds shelter in his Grandfather. Clott wished he did not have that button and be “normal”…
The Green Hand will do anything to get him unbuttoned and finally destroy this story.
Which are the Green Hand plans for Clott and his family?
What decision will Clott take?
Will he unbuttoned?
