Blocks 1,5+

Based on motifs of the story House of Blocks by Ela Peroci / 40 min

This puppet show is an aesthetic experience for the youngest theatregoers. It does not tell a concrete story, but we play in it and in doing so take life seriously. Jelka and Danilo play with blocks. They build, revive and animate "one simple box". They build a home, their own house made out of blocks, and in it a world of tenants and happenings that are associated with the real images of the world: with the weather, with the physical characteristics of objects, with the limits of the human body, with relationships between people, with stereotypes and peculiarities.

Following extremely successful ventures into adult theatre, this represents another step in a whole new direction. /.../"
