The Boy and the Butanding is a conceptual show currently being developed. The puppet featured is the small version of the boy character for the show. The story focuses on the Sama-Bajau people and their ability to hold their breath for prolonged periods of time. This story looks into Filipino family dynamics and a boy's relationship with the sea.
