Professor Boris’s lab, the witch’s house and its magical ingredients, a swamp of frogs with cat’s cradle and flowery umbrellas, everything is part of a great exhibition inspired in Eva’s works. It has scenographic and technologic resources, as well as dolls, games, theater, display of originals and, of course, storytelling.
The exhibition was designed and produced by SESC Ribeirão Preto in the first semester of 2014. Later, in 2015, it was taken to Sesc units in the cities of Catanduva, Araraquara, Taubaté and Bauru. It received more than 70 thousand visitors.

(We tried hard to make this post shorter, but there were too many cool things that couldn’t be left out!)


An admirer of the millenary technique of marquetry, Karina Figueiró creates pieces based on illustrations. She has many works inspired by Eva’s books.
The fun playful pieces are handmade and really show all the time and affection Karina dedicated to each one of them. Absolutely beautiful!

Pandolfo Bereba

Show produced by Cia. Circo de Trapo based on the homonymous book.
Pandolfo Bereba was a prince. Everybody expects princes to be handsome, charming and perfect. So it happens that Pandolfo wasn’t anything like that, but nevertheless he wanted others to be…

A Bruxinha

A doll show created in 1991 by Cia. Truks, in which Eva Furnari participated until 94, together with Claudio Saltini, Henrique Sitchin, Verônica Gerchman and Eduardo Amos. The play uses a traditional Japanese doll theater called bunraku. It was on stage until1998 and was awarded the Mambembe Trophy, the Ministry of Culture award. In 2010, it was back on stage with the new artists at Cia. Truks.
In the show, the Bruxinha (Little Witch) has fun inventing magic tricks and meeting new friends, with who she shares adventures: the drama lion, the dragon and, of course, her secret admirer Gregório. Everything is fine until a very clumsy monster comes along trying to get Bruxinha’s magic wand.
Curiously, this story followed an inverse course: the play inspired the book.

Cocô de Passarinho

Inspired by the book, the show created by Cia. Noz de Teatro has on stage dolls and actors to tell the story of the people who live in a village and meet every day on the square, but have nothing much to talk about. Their dull life is turned around by a problem right on their head: bird poo. The show was directed by Anie Welter and was awarded the APCA 2013 for best animation/doll show.
