This heartfelt, silly, and imaginative all-ages puppet show follows a young girl and her best friend, a garden snail, on a bus ride to find the meaning of home with the people they meet. Using large-scale marionettes, projection, shadow puppetry, and dance, Porto Domi explores adapting to unexpected situations and the joy of finding new friends.
