National Theatre/Laterna magika (CZ): PAPER STORY

23.9. at 18:00

Tyl Theater, Performance for the entire family, admission: 150/120,- Kč

Imagine you could create a new world from absolute nothingness. The kind of world you may dream about, safe, yet abounding in surprises and adventures. Our hero stands before a tabula rasa – equipped with just his imagination and lily-white paper that can become anything. A new world arises from imagination, creativity and playfulness. Truly strange things happen in this paper world, and when its frolicsome inhabitants appear, rest assured that adventure will soon follow. But a boy who likes to seek new discoveries is sometimes a bit impetuous and has to learn how to behave in a world of fragile paper so as not to harm it. There is, however, much more in store – you will see, for instance, the great power of kindness and goodwill, and the boy’s paper pals help him find the path to true friendship. The production combines mime and contemporary dance with elements of acrobatics, puppetry and animation. In the interactive ending, we will invite the youngest spectators to help us put the finishing touches on our new world.

The performance is suitable for children age four and up.
