“Expected more!”
A company that celebrates 47 years of existence, since the big masks from their earlier work in 1971, to the dancers in the 80's and 90's and the small puppets - almost alive - that have made company known, the Contadores de Estórias (The...more

A perfect place to know and have a little fun. Was incredible see how simple and progressive (at the same time) they can touch us. Without words they say a lot. Thank you guys for make me see this show.

The figures are amazing! You get to the point you forget they are being handled by humans :) I was disappointed with the fact that it doesn't have a story! They are small pieces of 3 - 5 minutes each, but they are not related!...More

An amazingly bad way to spend an hour. There were 2 good things: the show only lasted an hour, and the theatre was not unbearably hot. The show consists of 2 actors dressed in black with their faces covered, slowly manipulating small puppets through a...More

A pretty small theatre in the centre of Paraty, we were advised it was worth seeing. The theatre is small about 50 people and when we booked she recommended we had front row seats to see the movement of the puppets faces. The show was...More

FANTASTIC show! Simple but so exquisitely different and delicate. The puppets are made to perfection and the manipulators make them seem so incredibly life like! Make sure you book ahead at a tourist shop ( we booked with the one behind the church with the...More

This marvellous puppetry piece is a must do in Paraty. We are avid theatre goers and this exceeded our expectations. The show goes for one hour and is made up of 7 short stories. It is literally breathtaking, almost to the point that it is...More

Wonderful series of character vignettes told in a theatrical and engaging way. Magical: even when you know it is simply articulated dolls manipulated by two actors, you can't help believing that they are individual characters with deep and meaningful stories to tell. Book early- it's...More
