A pocket size Christmas show from Vlefaro Live Cinema
Watch the show in Greek:
It has been a difficult year for Santa Claus: His reindeer caught a cold and he had to nurse them through the winter, the crows ate all the zucchinis in his vegetable garden, his piano was out of tune because it was so cold (and good luck finding a piano tuner in the North Pole at this time of year), his favorite book, “Guide to being a good Santa”, went missing and he couldn’t find it anywhere, as much as he looked and, as if all that weren’t enough, while decorating the large pine tree in his yard, he fell and sprained his ankle!
To cheer him up, his elves decide to give him a special surprise present: a painting of his portrait! And no one could be better to paint it than Mrs. Vlefaridou!
Santa Claus, however, cannot be described in words, nor can his image be captured in a simple photograph. So, his elves prepare for Mrs. Vlefaridou a long and strange poem to convey the features of their beloved Saint, and all that surrounds him in his everyday life.
Mrs. Vlefaridou’s shy secretary, Mister Ignatios, her silent assistant, Miss Shoo, and Rizi-Mizi, Santa’s crazy and demanding elf, all come together to help Mrs. Vlefaridou paint the portrait, often failing spectacularly.
Will Mrs. Vlefaridou manage to meet the elves’ expectations? And the painting? Will it ever reach Santa Claus?
A studio/art installation is set up at the Book Castle, and the stage is populated by the creators of “Mrs. Vlefaridou”, Aggeliki Bozou and Thanos Kosmidis, along with Alexis Ioannou from the Burger Project, for an unusual Christmas show that may be short in length, but rich in value! Live music, funny lines, songs, art constructions, an entertaining tale and a painting created before the children’s eyes.
