First love

23. 6. 2018, 11.00, Galerija ŠKUC

Puppet show organised by ŠKUC theater

For children 4 years and older, duration 25 minutes

The puppet show is based on a picture book that was published in collection Lambda in 2014 by Brane Mozetič. It was also published in Spain, Sweden and South Korea. This sensitively written story casts a light on that first, gentle, and powerful love, and the feelings from it that we keep with us our whole lives. That is what happens to the main character of the story, a six-year-old-boy who finds safety and acceptance only in the company of Drejček. Love and strong friendship grows among the two boys, but the people around them disapprove of those feelings.

After the show there will be a talk with the creators.
