沙丁龐客首部兒童劇創作‧取材自非洲的民間預言故事,帶領大家進入神祕的非洲叢林世界~

《馬穆與精靈》取自非洲的童話故事,主題是敦親睦鄰。故事敘述一名叫做馬穆的農夫,他不是很富裕。有一天,他無意間聽到田間的麵包樹傳來低語,仔細一聽發現原來是住在樹上的精靈!從那天開始馬穆便將每日的收成放在樹下送給精靈們,開始了彼此良好的互動關係,彼此照應。一年,馬穆的兒子小四在外地打臨工賺錢。就在他準備回家的那一天,精靈的兒子突然出現在門前,希望小四可以幫他把一袋銀幣帶回老家交給精靈爸爸。小四答應了。他回到家鄉之後依照精靈兒子的指示來到精靈家族的宮殿。小四詳細的告訴精靈爸爸他兒子的消息,並且依照他的指示把一帶銀幣交給精靈爸爸。精靈爸爸非成的感謝他的幫忙,於是把宮殿裡滿地的珠寶鑽石都送給了小四。回到家裡,小四對爸爸馬穆一五一十的報告遭遇,兩人於是望向遠處的麵包樹,開心的微笑著。

《馬穆與精靈》是沙丁龐客首度的兒童劇創作。本劇將使用街頭戲劇的形式,利用極簡的舞台與道具,運用演員超度訓練的身體語言與聲音。藉由面具、雜耍、小丑、偶,還有現場鼓樂與非洲歌舞。將非洲的土地與故事,呈現在小朋友面前,不但刺激觀眾的想像力,也增加觀眾的參與感。開場由演員誤以為弄錯演出時間,開始整頓舞台、收拾道具,一同帶領觀眾進入童話世界。同時也藉遊戲中戲的形式來演出,讓一群有點笨又很好笑的小丑演員,化身說書人的口白貫串全劇。
