Narrative theatre with elements of physical theatre and puppet figures. A Greek folk tale with the same name ‘Maroula’ for little and …alarmed big children, using mixed expressive elements: theatrical narration, puppetry, masks and live music.

Maroula is a beautiful young girl, whose mother has promised to the Sun that she will be given as an oblation on her twelfth birthday. But the girl suffers away from her mother and begins a long journey to reunite with her. A tree shall become her throne of power, the deer her faithful helper, while evil Lamia, female demons stand in her way. How will she manage to run away from them all and reunite with her mother?
