UNICORN INVATION PARADE & THE BLUE APPLE
Unicorns are back after thousands of years missing. Like a stone that’s been thrown in still water, they break into daily life with an explosion of energy.
Monotony had taken over the city and in the middle of so much indifference, Ild, a lonely musician who was trying unsuccessfully to captivate its inhabitants, gets interrupted by a Unicorn Invasion. They are determined to surprise the human kind!
Ild can communicate with them telepathically and so he discovers that unicorns eat blue apples because they give them a magical power: the ability to laugh, enjoy life and love. Humans only eat bread and salt.
Surrounded by dance and singing Ild is feeling confused and wants to escape, but then the unicorns blow their horns. The mysterious Spirit of the Forest answers to their call and offers the musician a blue apple.
To be or not to be an unicorn? Maybe the transformation is about to begin.
Itinerant show suitable for all kind of audience
Unicorn Invasion Parade & The Blue Apple is an itinerant show that includes different elements from theatre, dance, clown, circus and live music. The choreographies and songs are strongly inspired by Lationamerican, Balcan and African music. The performers use masks shaped as an unicorn head, percussion instruments, tambourines, trutrucas, djembes and chairs. It is divided in two sections:
- 1st Section: Unicorn Invasion Parade – A parade with live music during the whole itinerary. The performers move around constantly interacting with the audience and staging short musical numbers in different stations (squares, corners…) until they get to their final destination, where the second section of the show will take place.
- 2nd Section: The Blue Apple – A narrator tells the plot of the story. It contains coral numbers with choreographies inspired by African and Brazilian dances, all accompanied with live music and percussive sequences
