Synopsis
 
During the last moments of his life an old man feels the urge to carry out a forgotten ritual taught to him by the only survivor of an extinct and forgotten tribe. They believed each recently hatched butterfly was the spirit of a dead warrior searching for his kingdom.

Every year at the same time the sacred men stood on a cliff, their arms open, palms covered in fresh nectar, waiting to feed the butterflies as they set off on their annual migration.

Teatro Cinema, the Chilean company directed by Juan Carlos Zagal, blends film and live action in an original visual and poetic style.

The Man Who Fed Butterflies was performed at the King's Theatre, Edinburgh. It is co-production between Edinburgh International Festival, Teatro Cinema, Santiago a Mil, Scène Nationale de Sète, Centre Dramatique Le Manège, Napoli Teatro Festival and Fondo Para El Desarrollo de Las Artes (Chilean Government).
