Traspatràs is an educational play that promotes accident prevention, civility and recycling. It is a show full of magic, balloon twisting, humor and children’s participation.
During 45 minutes, clueless Professor Patruskus and his friend, rooster Pipo Corocó, strive to reaffirm a simple but vital idea: think before acting.
Participation is the main ingredient of the play. Children are not just passive spectators, but take an active part in disguising themselves and playing characters such as Capità Pirata (who will learn to cross a street without getting hurt), Semaforers (in charge of operating a living traffic light) and Cap Dur (which will show us why is so important to wear a helmet every time we get on the bike).
Despite the fun stuff, Traspatràs deals with serious issues: recycling and caring for the environment, how to cross the street without getting hurt, bike and helmet, driving safety and even responsible pet ownership.
