Mother Earth


“Mother Earth” is an actor and puppet show for children about the appearance of life on Earth.

Bernardo is five years old and has a lot of unanswered questions: “Where did the moon, the sun, the stars and the planet Earth come from?”; “Why did all the dinosaurs die?”, “Before I was in Mummy’s belly, where was I?”.

One night, when he has just gone to sleep, some very strange characters enter his room, erect a circus tent and prepare to explain to him, through different circus acts, the origin of life on planet Earth, from the Big Bang explosion to the appearance of the human being.

A show for children aged 4 and over, inspired by our children’s questions about nature and the books of Charles Darwin, Richard Dawkins and Richard Feynman.
