Soundtrack Bye Bye Bird Sonny Boy Williamson-II (1963)

Created and performed by Esteban Adrian Giovinatti

Little Boy is a tiny tiny show that bewitches boys and girls of all ages.

For a very short four minutes, we can watch these amusing characters inhabiting a small ecosystem that is reliant on the resources of the Vietnamese water puppets to re-enact the marshy universe of the Mississippi blues.

Bye Bye Bird!



Esteban Adrian Giovinatti
Born in Uruguay, became a puppeteer at Teatro El Galpon (Montevideo) and he is now particularly focused in the folk expressions of puppet theatre.

Between 2002 and 2004, in Uruguay and Brazil, he experimented with different techniques in his shows: theatre of shadows, direct handling, Kuruma Ningyo, Lambe lambe and Luba.

In 2005, he toured Europe with short versions, adapted for street performances, in an attempt to meet with the public at a different level- Adagio (Kuruma Ningyo), Surf in USA (lambe lambe), Laboratoire (lambe lambe) are among the remains of this exploration.

In 2007 alongside Céline Camilleri, he co-founded puppet theatre company La Malette, and since then they staged over five shows.
