Concerto grosso  

Pavel Polák

Three actors want to act out a fairytale, and each of them wants to play the main role of narrator. Somehow they come to an understanding and the well-known fairytale can begin, not without the continual mutual conflict of human vanity, however – but all the same they safely bring gentle Snow White to a happy ending. The beautiful traditional visual appearance stages a vividly coloured wealth of wooden puppets, starring the rascal dwarfs: "Short humans bear the name 'a child'; how fitting that we, shorter still, as dwarfs be styled!"

T fairytale, family, love, trust, solidarity, evil, sincerity, love; traditional puppetry techniques
