"Looking for Lem" of the Teatro de Ferro, is presented this Friday and Saturday at the Teatro Campo Alegre, in the International Puppet Festival of Porto 2016 (FIMP 2016).

The show was built around the Polish writer Stanislaw Lem (1921-2006), a famous literary figure and published worldwide in collections of popular nature and, at the same time, a paradoxically unknown author.

"Looking for Lem" is a show, a game, an adventure and a simultaneously amusing and disturbing experience. Another way to imagine the world (current and future) through the theater and its masks," described the director of the Teatro de Ferro.
