Short tour of the show in Okinawa and in Shizuoka until August 3rd

La Baracca theatre company’s bond with the Far East strengthens.

After successful tours of this and other shows in China, Singapore, South Korea, and Japan – in Kochi and Niihama – the company is back in Japan with the show for children aged 1-4 Upside Down.

This time, the show was guest of the 'ricca ricca*festa - International Theater Festival Okinawa for Young Audiences', on July 27th and 28th, and from the 1st to the 3rd of August it is staged in Shizuoka.

Upside Down was awarded the Grand Prix and the "25 Golden Stars" of Children's Jury during the 2017 edition of the Summer Puppet Pier Festival of Maribor, in Slovenia, and, in the same year, won the Jury Prize at the "100, 1,000, 1,000,000 Stories" Festival of Bucharest, in Romania.

According to Italian critic Mario Bianchi, who mentions it among his “Best of 2017” in Italian children theatre, it is «a delicious show both in the form and in the content, a show which talks about friendship and sharing in a simply and poetic way».

The tour in Japan of Upside Down is supported by Emilia-Romagna Region Office for cultural activities abroad.
