Ščeper and Mba 3+

Svetlana Makarovič / 35 min

Ščeper is a small animal, no bigger than a pinch. He lives a quiet, solitary life until a fox who wants to eat him sneaks into his vicinity. So, Ščeper goes to look for a new solitary place ...

Being alone and being together with others is challenging, and in the course of our lives, we are constantly navigating between different forms of coexistence. The excellent text by Svetlana Makarovič sets us a mirror and speaks about these different forms of coexistence in her typical style. The performance is also distinguished by the luxury of traditional puppetry solutions: from marionettes, bunraku puppets to table puppets.
