KOHI by Pampinak Theatre (Uruguay)_Trailer
The Story

It’s a simple story: Kone Matrak, is a presenter and a collector of show fragments.  He travelled around the world watching shows, and these are the favorite ones: Liu and the Water, a boy who played with his own reflection on the water; Onak and His Pet, an acrobat with his strange pet; Lejla, a ballet dancer with her dragon; and KOHI and the Giant Garden Seed, a gardener clown chasing a flying seed.

 

The Arts Group

Pampinak is a puppet theatre company using black light theatre as the main staging technique.  The puppets used are made by the company members themselves through experimentation, with an emphasis on creating natural movements with mechanisms of their own design.  In adopting a mixture of black light theatre and the Japanese bunraku for staging, the company tells stories that entertain and at the same time tug at the heart.  The language used is a universal one, easily understood by people of all ages and regardless of background and race.  By stimulating the human capacity for surprise, love of beautiful things, laughter and music, the company is able to turn a theatre spectacle into a life experience.
