Perfectly suited for audiences of all ages, the literary musical creation is a narration of thought-provoking four short stories from Indian and European traditions, adapted for the stage, and interspersed with a variety of musical pieces. Hindustani Classical Music, Western Classical Music, European Baroque songs, English and Spanish melodies, Indian and French Folk Music, and contemporary music all find a place in the show.

The Lilanoor group intends to create a poetic and magical universe using puppets and shadow theatre techniques, with the extraordinary Puppeteer and Sculptor Mohammed Shameem.

At a time when exchanges between the peoples of the whole world have never been so easy, but being paradoxically deeply troubled by numerous health, ecological and social crises, it seems essential to recall through these tales and fables, how much each human being is unique but also similar to his neighbour, how humanity is rich in its diversity and its potential for sharing and creativity, unlimited.
