Presented online, this show is about two dancers and their crazy magic radio.

As the dancers perform to their traditional Portuguese music, the radio transports them around the world – to places including Brazil, Russia, Africa, Arabia. It is a fun story about traditional dance. The show has no verbal dialogue and is originally a street show.

This is a free event, it will be livestreamed here, on Youtube and on the Puppet Festival Facebook page – followed by a live Q&A link up with the artists. Hear more about their work and explore their puppetry world.
