The TANGRAM, also known as The Wisdom Puzzle or The Seven Boards of Cunning, is a well-known jigsaw of Chinese origin whose objective is to reproduce a suggested figure using the seven pieces of the puzzle. There is, at the same time, totally freedom to build different figures. This represents a game that develops greatly the creativity. It is also said that the Tangram has its origin in the theatrical performances that took place in the Ancient China. Those performances were made with puppets, so they could represent inanimate objects, animals or people in movement.
The TANGRAM is also the name of the new show by TOC DE RETRUC. The basis of this show is the same concept of the game: we play to play, not only with the figures that we can form with the Board, turning them into objects with life, but also with all the elements of the stage. Like this, the stage game mixes up with the musical game, forming a mosaic of scenes where the plastic arts, the rhythm, the music and the interpretation lead us to a world of fantasy, making a show full of power and audible and visual beauty that will mark the young audience, to whom the show is specially addressed to.
TANGRAM is performed by five actors, who are at the same time musicians and dancers, and it is addressed to a family audience with no age limitations.Veure més a Escena Familiar
