Multidisciplinary show of puppets and music, designed for boys and girls from 5 to 9 years old.
For as long as anyone can remember, the Cyls, a family of people with round heads, have never
been able to get along with anyone who does not share their tastes and peculiarities, their neighbors have just arrived in the neighborhood, and they have very different tastes, peculiarities and even have square heads. Despite this, the children of both families become playmates, but their friendship is threatened by the prejudices of their elders, so they set out to discover the origin of the differences and conflict between their families and try to work it out.
The story is represented in an agile and often comical way, while still confronting young audiences with certain situations of violence that can lead to discrimination, using puppets and physical action with few words to convey a universal message about overcoming the prejudices.
