Inside a suitcase, as if it were the stage of a great theater, the actress Ignacia Durand moves her marionettes - which she herself handcrafted with ceramics and fabric - to interpret great classics in medieval scenography with incredible handmade outfits. The first time I saw her version of "Hansel and Gretel" I faced personal prejudices about the world of marionettes. "This is for kids," I said. But the next twenty minutes I had an incredible time. The treatment of the narrative and the versatile handling of each of the characters made me enjoy and monopolized my attention with a hundred percent, with a story that children will love and that has small and funny winks towards the adult audience.
