Cia El Dit al Nas we enter the final stretch of our new project: an adaptation of one of the great French cult comics: Philémon.

When we were little, we were excited by a French comic book published in Cavall Fort magazine. It was mysterious, dreamy and attractive, so different that it exceeded the limits of our childish imagination! Philémon was a comic book where everything was possible, that's why Fred's drawings have survived to our memory today.

In all the maps of the world, between Europe and the American continent, some letters form the words Atlantic Ocean. Cartographic Convention? Perhaps, but in the world of Philemon, these letters are not symbols, but islands with letters, a magical archipelago that exists and at the same time does not exist and in which, therefore, anything can happen to them.

The surrealist trips of Philemon and his donkey, Anatole, for the worlds of letters are considered one of the great classics of the modern French comic book, perhaps the European work that has best known the meaning of the wonder of Windsor McCay's Little Nemo in Slumberland and the surrealism and imagination of Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland.

The show

Philemon's travels are a show for family audiences with puppets, shadows, screenings and live music.

To recreate this universe, we use screenings from images taken directly from the comic, in order to respect the stroke and color.

The real world from which the main characters are sold is represented by the technique of shadows and in the dream world of the letters of the Atlantic Ocean we break the two dimensions using puppets of different techniques (stalk, glove, flat silhouette ...) as well as different scenographic resources that support visual poetry characteristic of comics.

We want to dilute the boundaries between one and the other, as in the comic is the boundaries between reality and fiction. And to make the amalgam of all this, we will use live music (voice, flute, synthesizer, loop station, percussion) to create the atmosphere of history, as a generator of everything that is going on.


The path of imagination has no limits.

At the bottom of a hole there is the door to another world: the magic universe of the letters of the Atlantic Ocean. It is a place that does not exist, and therefore, a place where everything is possible.

Philemon, a young boy, curious, with impetus, discovers the entrance to this world. There he knows Barthelemy, a shipwreck of time. Together they travel from one world to another, in search of an impossible, crossing the boundaries between reality and imagination.

But every game has rules, and breaking them may have unpredictable consequences ...

What use will we give to your contributions

We enter the final stretch of the show, and now, more than ever, we need your support.

Your contributions will be used to help cover the final production costs of the stage design, puppets and graphic material of the show.

Some of the money will be also to pay for the copyright that the publisher Dargaud has given us.

    Hola La Plana Records. Moltes gràcies per l'aportació. Pel que fa a la recompensa, si ja teniu l'integral i sou subscriptors de Cavall Fort, poc atractives us poden semblar les recompenses... Ara estem molt apressats de temps, centrats en acabar la construcció dels elements, treballant en acabar les projeccions, l'escenografia, treballant a contra-rellotge i assajant l'espectacle. Ens manca temps i mans. La idea de les rèpliques de titelles o les miniatures és molt maca, però la veritat és que no tenim el temps material per fer-ho. La feina de taller sempre és lenta i laboriosa. Per això les recompenses les aporten col·laboradors externs però vinculats amb el projecte.

#01 / Moltes gràcies!!

Bon dia mecenes!

En Filalici segueix treballant per acabar d'enllestir el seu espectacle.

El Verkami ja finalitzat ens ha donat l'empenta que necessitàvem.

Alguns ja heu rebut les vostres recompenses i d'altres les rebreu en breu.

Ja tenim data oficial d'estrena: el 15 d'abril a les 18h ens estrenem a la Mostra de teatre infantil i juvenil d'Igualada!!

Abans farem unes preestrenes per anar prenent el pols de l'espectacle.

Us volem agraïr la vostra participació i volem agraïr també a Cavall Fort, ECC edicions i al centre artístic Cal Gras d'Avinyó, el seu suport en tot el procés de creació.

Al febrer podreu trobar un article dins la revista Cavall Fort que parla de l'espectacle.

Seguim treballant i assajant per estar apunt per a l'estrena.

Moltes gràcies i fins molt aviat.
