La Compagnia TITIRITAIAS (Ecuador): The Story of the Lost Egg; puppets for children 3+

Mrs Parrot lays her first egg in her nest and is all happy preparing socks and dresses for her first chick. Suddenly, she notices that the nest is empty – the egg is gone! With the help of the audience, after many complications, the story comes to a happy ending…

This dynamic puppet show with hand puppets is based on the Ecuadorian folk puppet tradition. Yolanda Navas, the author and performer of the show, has been puppeteering since 1983 and is well-known both at home and at European puppet festivals. Since 2001, she has been leading an international puppet festival in Ecuador, to which Slovenian puppeteers are occasionally invited.
