Opera House is welcoming a family-friendly puppet show from Spain in the Dragon Boat Festival holiday, and the show is also an ideal gift for kids on Children’s Day!

"Summertime. Some far away port town. A little hotel by the sea. Guests and servants don't suspect that those days will change their lives...” These few words best show us a picture of where the fun story will happen!

Hôtel Crab is a comedy full of surprises, passions and misunderstandings. The story takes place in Russia at a time that is neither real nor in the present. The atmosphere is dream-like and expressly artificial, in order to provoke a certain curiosity in the spectators. Hôtel Crab is a puppet show for family, a story without words that makes use of theatrical language in a way reminiscent of silent film.

About Trukitrek

The Catalan company Trukitrek has born in 1998. Its members came from different artistic backgrounds. They joined with the idea of forming a travelling company of puppet theatre.

The company works with different techniques of manipulating puppets, from classic puppet thread, till direct manipulation of puppets. The notable style is called "humanette", where the characters are half and half human and puppet. The performances of the company propose a comic staging without words, where puppets, music and visual poetry are constant elements. The mime as universal language and the original scenic proposal, have led the company to several international tours. Trukitrek has performed its shows in 30 countries in Europe, Asia and Latin America.
