The Vulture Wally
The blessed misses, two fading yet timeless Alpine sirens, sing and tell stories about the fight against nature, the raw mountain world, and the human abyss. Plus: a strong woman, a wild hunter, an authoritative father, a scheming rival mixed together with a big portion of love and passion, an inn, and the mountains of Tyrol. And the special ingredient: a vulture, who guides us through the story as the lawyer of the Vulture Wally.
It is a story about emancipation in which the Vulture Wally confidently and defiantly confronts entrenched family and social structures. Get ready for an evening set in venerable Alpine romance, a tragicomedy that sometimes gets a bit grotesque. Hand puppets make serious efforts to portray this powerful film material and beguile their audience. A dramatic and entertaining story—staged with a twinkle in the eye and performed with high-caliber puppetry skill.
