ANN-DROID
Suits all ages

The Wonderful Adventures of Robot Girl

From BANDART Productions
Supported by NKA
This international performance comes all the way from Hungary!

Ann-Droid implements the story of Pinocchio in the 21st century. In this story Pinocchio is a little robot girl called Ann who feels at home in the virtual world by using the digital devices children use today. Her goal is to turn into a real human; therefore, she needs to learn the most important virtues: bravery, loyalty, honesty and joy of useful activities.

Ann-Droid combines theatre with the newest digital technologies: projection, a smart LED costume; a robot ball and a drone!
