A Story about a Boy and a Penguin 2+

Based on motifs from the children's book Oliver Jeffers / Co-producers Mini Theatre and Moment / 45 min

This visually and technologically superb puppet performance cordially invites the audience into its midst and takes place all around. It shows an unusual friendship which requires some common experiences, work, reading, traveling, searching and thinking, before it can recognize its own solidity. At first, the boy thinks that the annoying penguin simply got lost, so he tries everything to get him back home to the South Pole. And the penguin follows, always on his heels: into the lost and found office, the park, the library, the harbor, the workshop, and so on. After the task is successfully completed, the boy realizes that he had been wrong all along—the penguin never got lost, he chose him.
