Ann-Droid (Hungary)

Tuesday 16th-Wednesday 17th October 2018

A 21st century Pinocchio that combines theatre with the digital technologies: projection, LED costume, robot ball and drone, in a story for all ages.

Robot girl Ann’s goal is to become human. Her creator Alfred, a playful inventor, gives Ann one task - to collect and bring back home the lost creatures. 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. But what else does Ann find? Follow her path to learn what she really discovers in this magical world!

In this beautifully animated, heart-warming family show from multi-award winning BANDART Productions, drawings come to life and performers move together with the projected visuals to create a 3D movie experience, right before our very eyes.
