A homage  to words (almost without words) dedicated to those grandmothers who tell tales while they sew and knit

Gisela Llimona's grandmother always accompanied her grandfather on trips around the world. While he talked about business, grandmother knitted in silence. This silence prevailed in the house when she died. Today one of the scarves she knitted started to unravel and Gisela discovered that her grandmother was a collector of words. This discovery will lead her to open her grandmother's travel trunk and discover all the words she kept.

About the company

The company's history is recent, although it has been using the name of Gisela Llimona as an story teller for more than 15 years.

The first production is 'Lope sobre ruedas', a show co-produced by the Compañía Nacional de Teatro Clásico (INAEM) for children aged 6 and over. The oral narrative work about the life and work of Lope de Vega has been nominated for the Premios Max two years in a row and is part of  Cuaderno 54 de Teatro Recomendado de La Red.
