White Camel 5+

Nika Bezeljak based on a true story / 55 min

The nomadic family in the Mongolian Desert expects the birth of camel calves. The last born is a white camel, which its mother, after a difficult birth, does not want to accept, does not want to feed her and does not want to take care of it. The eight-year-old boy Ugna concerned over the survival of the white camel and his family goes to the city to find a solution. He takes on responsibility, confronts his fears, tries to survive and hears the Mother Nature’s gently calls for help. The Mongolian environment, a hard and unrelenting nature that dictates the lives of its inhabitants, tells us the story of respecting that what is greater from us, what we cannot control, but we can co-exist and co-operate with it.

The play is created as a theater of objects and it is a constantly evolving world, living things are turning into non-living, people into the animals, the jute canvas into the endless blue Mongolian sky ...

The script is based on actual events.
