A present day take on the Pinocchio story that combines theatre with animation in a magical and enchanting way perfect for children and their adults.

Widowed eccentric inventor Alfred invents a robot girl to join his fantastical assortment of robots, Bip Bip the loyal robot ball, Foot-Mushroom, Lolly-Pot and Hand-Whisk. Ann is tasked with going on a quest and during her wonderful journey on the ground, in the air and underwater she has to face many challenges that help her discover the most important virtues in life. Before the very eyes of the audience, the drawn animation comes to life where performers move together with the projected visuals creating a 3D movie experience.

Due to unexpected difficulties and diverse incredible adventures on their way, both Alfred and Ann have to evolve. By learning from their mistakes, they (creator and creature, father and daughter) find their way back to each other again.

    Weekend Notes


BANDART Productions is a collaboration of two Hungarian artists: Katalin Lengyel and Szabolcs Tóth-Zs.

Their shows combine theatre with the latest interactive technologies in order to create visually stunning performances.

Their pieces have won 3 awards and have been invited to more than 90 international festivals in 4 continents. Among other corporate events, they have been commissioned twice by the Council of Europe to create two gala shows for the World Forum for Democracy. Recently their show received the Golden Buzzer in the Hungary’s Got Talent TV show. They also invented a special new media and dance workshop where participants can get to know the secret of their technique.
