“Don’t Touch My Hands” is a performance in which Chinese shadow puppetry encounters silent cinema combined with humor and music to create a collection of stories packed with amusement and appealing to a wide range of audiences. Valeria Guglietti is the globally renowned puppeteer specializing in shadows produced by her hands, resulting from the enormous dexterity she has built up by playing the piano since childhood. Her fingers are able to imitate many types of creatures and endow them with living form. Using only a single spotlight and both hands, Guglietti creates fantastic images that enact short stories reaching out to the imagination of the audience.
