El Conde de Torrefiel company had not yet created pieces for young audiences. The desire to connect with the 21st century generation – upon whom the future rests – added to an effort to demonstrate that theater dramaturgy and poetic abstraction could work together.

The storytelling of Los Protagonistas hinges predominantly on those images. The staging encourages the audience – 7 to 10-year-old children and chaperones – to tap their own resources, instincts and imagination to get into the play, in every sense of the word. Before they even enter the auditorium, the audience members are handed earphones with which they can hear the voice of a storyteller walking them through the journey.

Once fully equipped for the experience, they are greeted in small groups in a space split in five differently arranged settings. Each of these is a gateway to another world that requires special interactions and offers an escape away from ordinary life. Moving through various environments, engaged by visual effects that conjure up landscapes, mythological creatures or animated objects, children and parents create their own script. A unique and multisensory artistic experience where reality and illusion blend into each other.
