In an old abandoned textile factory, two children are playing. Ropes, fabrics, threads, lamps and shadows become their toys. Children tell stories and imagine a world in which the factory reopens and their parents have a job again. The only way to achieve this in the real world is to persuade the emperor to reopen the factory. But perhaps there is another way: deception.
This original performance is an adaptation of a famous fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen. This exciting narrative introduces children to the themes that define the modern world: politics, consumerism, globalization and the struggles for a better life. The story tries to entertain the children while offering them a reflection on the world in which they grow up.
