Since time immemorial, humans have developed their capacities and used their imagination to sooth their anxieties, deepest concerns, sufferings and insecurities. A wide variety of solutions have been found. Sometimes, the suggested treatment is more virulent than the sensation to be relieved and disregards common sense, integrity and even morality. In search for a cure, human beings at times tread on dangerous ground… This raises the question: who cures who and from what?

The puppet is an instrument of infinite possibilities! As a source of fascination and ideals, a manipulator of dreams in which one is free to explore the inaccessible, the puppet weaves together images arising from gestures and movement. KoboL has made a name for itself with its at once visual and musical poetry, and in the course of its inspiring discoveries it has created worlds in which tenderness, humour, humanity and reflection coexist. It sets out to shatter conformity, break down the doors of the imaginary and share the enchantment!
