OH LA LA- City Puppet Theater Rijeka, Croatia


Summary:

The play Oh La La was created in poetry, tender, brilliant, sometimes ironic, but deep, joyful, sentimental. It is a show that allows us to get the impression of "what’s on your mind" for small and slightly older children. In essence, it starts from an idea that is both very simple and very complex: all children in the world are the same. Despite the differences and cultures, customs and languages, they all have one thing in common: play. All children love to play, regardless of their identity and origin. Bernard Friot and Herve Tullet, both very famous artists, advocate the idea that play is key to children’s development, in which imagination is a crucial element. And the puppet theater is the perfect place to play!

Herve Tullet’s concept of "Ideal Expo" served as a starting point for staging Bernard Friot’s lyrics, which he sang only for our play. Oh La La! The strength of Tullet’s concept lies not

Gerda s room- Osobnyak Theatre, Saint Petrsburg, Russia


Summary:

The production immerses the audience into the world of things and words from “The Snow Queen”, the world of enchanting sounds and puppets. In this story, Gerda is completely alone. The audience sees her just on her own.
Like a mirror, she reflects other characters, and follows these reflections. Gerda is still young in her memory. She doesn’t notice the passage of time, and keeps looking for Kai.
Gerda’s Room is about searching and fearing. It’s about eternity that is always ready to meet us. We put this eternity into a word, and breathe it out on a frozen window so we can finally see something dear to us which we have long lost.
Like our body, a room we inhabit reflects everything we have experienced. We all know the fairy tale about Gerda’s journey. But did Gerda really go out to look for Kai? People, roads, strange places...

Pinocchio - Maribor Puppet Theater, Slovenia


Summary:

The story of Pinocchio is an incredible adventure that has been a source of excitement for many generations and is still alive today. Pinocchio is a metaphor for how mistakes can also shape man.

Mistakes aren’t necessarily something bad; they are often the only way to teach us how to better understand and change our lives. As Italian writer Gianni Rodari once said, "Mistakes are necessary, beneficial as bread, and often beautiful, just look at the Tower of Pisa."

Centuries ago there lived ...  "A king!" my little readers will say immediately. No, children, you are mistaken. Once upon a time there was a piece of wood." That’s how Collodi’s novel begins.

And with a mistake and a piece of wood, begins also our play. The puppeteer’s toolbox, old puppets, and the ones that were just designed become our stage and our characters. The story reveals completely new meanings.

Some of the puppets in the play are the work of Anton Jezovšek (1905-1992), a renowned Maribor puppet designer, and are part of the collection of the Maribor Puppet Theatre. They have spoken – while waiting on shelves to be restored. We are convinced that their new life suits them, Anton Jezovšek created them to socialize with the actors and the stage.
