Strange creatures invade the peaceful town of Backwardville. What are they? Aliens? Werewolves? Dragons? They divide people’s opinions. Are they a menace to the town's customs or can they benefit the economy? Shall they be sent to the local Abu-Guraib hostel or made into minced meat?
A fable about not so distant events performed by an amazing and talented group of 9 to 11 years old. Dende was resident at Arts Depot for 2 months to develop this show.
