Hundred and One Unicorns was a participatory shadow theatre performance for children from 4-8 years of age by the puppet theatre Wolf Sign Theatre. It was performed in a tent built inside the theatre, inside which the audience sit like around a fire. They follow a journey of a hedgehog to find out wether unicorns really exist. It was a solo for two: there is only one performer inside the tent, while the puppeter outside creates the visual world on the walls of the tent. The performance premiered in TEHDAS Theatre in Turku in March 2014. I worked as a director in the last stages of the process.
