Synopsis:

Stories always start with "A long long time ago..." but our story starts with a little horse. The little horse has left his familiar hometown to travel alone to a faraway valley. But when he finally arrives, he finds himself a nuisance to the other animals in the valley. Can the little horse fit in?

One fateful day, a terrible disaster breaks out and all the animals are forced to flee their valley. Working together, they escape and find themselves in a new utopia. But will the residents welcome these newcomers? How will they fit in?

In collaboration with playwright Chou Jung-shih and award-winning illustrator Ghislaine Herbéra, Flying Group Theatre (Taiwan) combines puppetry, mask and shadow play to explore migration in this family-friendly fable. Utopiazoo is the latest work in the For You, My Children series by Flying Group Theatre which seeks to encourage parent-child dialogue on world issues.

Established in 2004, Flying Group Theatre has received multiple nominations at the Taishin Arts Awards and been invited to perform at arts festivals around the world in countries such as China, France, the Netherlands and Singapore.

故事总是从'很久很久以前⋯⋯'开始,而这次要从一匹小野马说起,它离开了温暖的家乡,独自流离到遥远的山谷,不但闯入了原住动物们的生活,也打破它们的日常秩序。小野马该怎么融入新的团体呢?

一场灾难爆发,大家各自发挥所长惊险逃难,但没想到来到新天地,迎接它们的,又是一场与原居动物们融合的故事......

与编剧周蓉诗及法国波隆纳国际插画奖得主莒丝莲‧额贝哈联手创作,台湾飞人集社结合了大型偶、面具、光影,通过动物寓言坚定直视群体融合议题。 《天堂动物园》是飞人集社"小孩也可以看"系列的最新作品, 让大人借着剧场开启讨论,让孩子融入各种社会议题。

成立于2004年,飞人集社的作品多次获台新艺术奖提名,并曾受邀到中国、荷兰、法国、新加坡等各艺术节演出。
