One of the most established Brazilian puppetry companies, Grupo Sobrevento presents in Baba's magic curtain a show developed in collaboration with Chinese shadow puppet master Liang Jun and performed to hundreds of children throughout South-America. A dream-like world waits patiently while Baba sews. As she dozes in the lamplight, the animals behind the curtain slowly awaken and begin their magical journey towards the town of Millamarchmantopolis. Based on the short story Nurse Lugton's Curtain that Virginia Woolf wrote to her niece, beautiful shadow puppetry performed by four actors/puppeteers with original soundtrack.
