“Lambe Lambe” is a unique form of puppet theatre in which tiny theatrical performances are presented in small, intricately designed boxes, for 1 or 2 audience members at a time. A puppeteer manipulates puppets, objects, props, lighting and sound in a miniature theatrical world, for audience members observing the work through a window, wearing headphones. Each show is its own universe, a secret to share privately. There is no spoken text. Oani Theatre presents an international festival of Lambe Lambe theatre annually in Valparaíso, Chile.
