Svetlana Makarovič based on motifs by the Brothers Grimm
The Brothers Grimm fairytale has already experienced many variations. This time, the puppet theatre is not interested in new narrative derivatives, but will simply perform the basic story and at the same time capture the playful dialogue between the puppets and drama theatre. As though we were playing or telling a bedtime story. The adaptation by Svetlana Makarovič, which was originally performed as a radio play, and the newly performed version will in its core set out the fairytale in all
its dimensions, which although we may not even be aware of it, we miss in everyday life. Due to this, Little Red Riding Hood, which also wagers on the depth of imagination of everyone who enters the theatre, seems to be the perfect play.
Press: From A Classic in All Regards, a review by Barbara Volčjak, Večer, 27th March 2012:
"/.../ The contents of this particular production of Little Red Riding Hood, then, are less or more classical. The same could be said about the directing and artistic aspects of the performance. Classical hand puppets and a visually streamlined, simple scenery with just enough functional elements are joined by the character of the Wolf in the form of a live actor, whose parts were sung and staged with an outstanding affinity for small nuances, without being too overdone or grotesque, by Miha
Bezeljak. As a whole, Markovčič's production is harmonious enough that a good attendance seems guaranteed./.../"
