Guyi-Guyi is a crocodile that, by chance of nature, was born into a family of ducks.
Guyi-Guyi lives happily with his family until one day he meets a crocodile. When he learns that crocodiles eat ducks, our hero will go through different difficulties to get to be himself. Guyi Guyi is a free adaptation of the story of «Ugly Duckling», which allows us to stage in an interesting and fun, the theme of the search for identity, an issue very much on a company as global as today.

The contrast between the characters helps us to represent the fear of difference and prejudice we throw on those who behave differently than we expect.

What happens when others see you differently?
«And when you look different to others?
Guyi-Guyi is a crocodile do not know what it is.
It is not fierce or ravenous. Do not know how to behave like the others.
Guyi-Guyi have to follow your instincts and learn how to act to be a «great crocodile»
Guyi-Guyi is a show for family audiences, recommended for ages 4 & up
