This unique little show from Hungary combines theatre with digital technology: interactive projection, a smart LED costume, a robot ball and a drone.
Ann-Droid is the story of Pinocchio set in the 21st century. In this story Pinocchio is a little robot called Ann who is at home in the virtual world, using digital devices as easily as any 21st century child. Her goal however, like Pinocchio, is to become a real child; exploring human relations and trying to connect with her scientist/creator.
Adventures abound as she tries to understand what it means to be human.
Ann-Droid explores how we can all find the balance between the virtual and real world by creatively connecting our digital skills with actual experiences. Ann-Droid is a charming show for children and families, and the Festival is thrilled to bring these wonderful dance/street performers from Hungary on their debut visit.
Ann-Droid is a great way to start the school holidays.
“Grace, humour, creativity… every moment is remarkable. The technology is beautifully integrated into the story. I didn’t want it to end”
