Lumen is a large-scale puppet theater production that involves the local population, as well as sports, recreational and musical institutions. From this union of efforts a show is born illuminating the night through a musical and movement narrative in which all who attend participate. The greatness of the characters with 5 meters of height wander around the built heritage told stories that are confused with the local ones. The largest original creation ever made by the company SAMarionetas - Teatro & Bonecos involving a team of dozens of people who help to build this work.

“Lumen - a love story. Great show, mix of puppets, light, original music, opera singers and videomaping, only possible for a company that has clearly reached a level of quality and professionalism above average, as is the case of SA Marionetas, who are dedicated to soul and heart to the puppet theater and the representation of Portugal in the world. ”
