Fish Eyes

puppet consultant
puppet show from the company "Zunzum Associação Cultural"


In times I did not knew, in times of my great-grandparents that I no longer have, on a distant village, lived a boy with a different appearance. This boy, as I say, was different from all boys his age. It wasn’t different by the looks of his hair, that he had enough, not even in his height, because he was tall for his age, or even the way he dressed or walked ... the difference was in his eyes, big round eyes, fish eyes. Now, as everyone knows, fish eyes are not the same as people's eyes. Fish eyes have no eyelids and therefore never close. Can you imagine, perhaps, someone who never closes his eyes? Never?
