The Emperor's New Clothes 6+

The creators of the performance based on motifs by H. C. Andersen / Co-producer Rijeka City Puppet Theatre / 45 min

In an old abandoned textile factory, two children are playing. Ropes, fabrics, threads,  lamps and shadows become their toys. Children tell stories and imagine a world in which the factory reopens and their parents have a job again. The only way to achieve this in the real world is to persuade the emperor to reopen the factory. But perhaps there is another way: deception.

This original performance is an adaptation of a famous fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen. This exciting narrative introduces children to the themes that define the modern world: politics, consumerism, globalisation and the struggles for a better life. The story tries to entertain the children while offering them a reflection on the world in which they grow up.
