This unique show combines theatre with the newest digital technologies: projection, a smart LED costume, a robot ball and a drone in a fascinating story for all ages.

In this modern version of Pinocchio, Ann, the robot girl, becomes human. During her wonderful journey on the ground, in the air and underwater she faces many challenges that help her discover the most important virtues in life. Before the audience’s very eyes, drawn animation comes to life where performers move together with the projected visuals creating a 3D movie experience. The story displays the complexity of their relationship, we can get to know Alfred’s different robots, together with many fantastic creatures, such as Foot-Mushroom, Lolly-Pot and Hand-Whisk.

Thanks to their delightful personalities and jolly design, the partially drawn and partially real beings turn out to be equally main characters to the performers. Alfred gives Ann one task: to collect and bring back home the lost creatures. Due to unexpected and diverse incredible adventures on their way, both of them have to evolve. By learning from their mistakes, Alfred and Ann find their way back to each other.
