Stories always start with “A long long time ago…” but our story starts with a little horse. The little horse has left his familiar hometown to travel alone to a faraway valley. But when he finally arrives, he finds himself a nuisance to the other animals in the valley. Can the little horse fit in?
One fateful day, a terrible disaster breaks out and all the animals are forced to flee their valley. Working together, they escape and find themselves in a new utopia. But will the residents welcome these newcomers? How will they fit in?
In collaboration with playwright Chou Jung-shih and award-winning illustrator Ghislaine Herbéra, Flying Group Theatre (Taiwan) combines puppetry, mask and shadow play to explore migration in this family-friendly fable. Utopiazoo is the latest work in the For You, My Children series by Flying Group Theatre which seeks to encourage parent-child dialogue on world issues.
Established in 2004, Flying Group Theatre has received multiple nominations at the Taishin Arts Awards and been invited to perform at arts festivals around the world in countries such as China, France, the Netherlands and Singapore.
