One thing, sometimes, is not what it is.

Sometimes things like to be other things, for instance to be like people. They like to move, to laugh, to like and not to like.

People / things and things / people are good to tell stories.

In the Fragile world, there are short stories and long stories. Things want to be taken to places things don't know, and things make short and long trips.

In the Fragile world there are people/ things who look for things/ people. There are secrets that are not revealed, or remain to be revealed, there is an open and closed universe. There are things coming out of other things.

In the Fragile world rules are not what they are, they are rules of imagination!



Teatro de Marionetas do Porto was created in September 1988, the same date in which the company was present at the official selection of the Festival Mondial des Théâtres de Marionnettes, in Charleville-Mézières.

The quest is to always find new ways to create puppets, and new ways to set the rules for this form of theatre, regarding interpretation and the links to other art forms such as dance, visual arts, music and image.
