Answers by Freia Canals and Denise Kornitz: Writers, Directors, Producers and Performers


Karen Tortora-Lee’s Question
This is an international festival. What part of the world are you coming from … and will your show tantalize the NYC audience with a taste of your nation’s culture?

Freia Canals and Denise Kornitz:
We are from Barcelona (Spain) and Buenos Aires (Argentina), but we have lived in different places including Madrid, London, Oxford, Israel and finally New York.
Yes, we brought to our show all our experiences and a big part of who we are.

Dianna Martin’s Question
Who is the greatest inspiration to you artistically?
Freia Canals and Denise Kornitz:
We both have a lot of experiences and people to inspire on: from friends, families to people we know. However the real inspiration came from the kids. We worked with them and we realized we wanted them to get in touch with some values that we believe important especially nowadays. Also we wanted to give them some tools to start getting in touch with who they are.

Geoffrey Paddy Johnson’s Question
What emerged as the greatest challenge during the development of this production?
Freia Canals and Denise Kornitz:The whole show has been a great challenge. We started from nothing and we came up with a script, we made puppets, life music and we combined 2 languages which are spoken simultaneously. The challenge never ends, continues every day we perform: we play 13 roles only being 2 actresses! Putting everything together was craziness but a wonderful experience!

Antonio Minino’s Question
You’re in Times Square surrounded by the best Broadway houses and highest selling entertainment in the world. What resources are you utilizing to spread the word about your show and get butts in seats?
Freia Canals and Denise Kornitz:
We both have been teachers and know families, teachers, schools. They have seen our show and they talked to some other friends and families, and these talked to other people etc. The reviews we got from our audiences have been great and that helped to spread the word. Also, having a bilingual show that has puppets, life music, is educative and very fun, helps!!
