Kotor Festival of Theatre for Children will celebrate its 25th jubilee edition – a quarter of a century of its existence. Main Theatre Program, which will be held from July 1 – 12, 2017, will be the richest so far. The audience will have an opportunity to see and enjoy twenty professional performances of various genres for both children and youth.
Our guests from Ukraine – Kyiv Municipal Puppet Theater prepared a new delightful adaptation of Rudyard Kipling's story of How the elephant got his trunk. The theatrical adaptation by director Mykhailo Uryskyi and the creative scenery and African styled outfits by set designer Mykola Danko give a fresh, vibrant look to this classic story. The performance settles down to focus on the Elephant’s Child with a "satiable curiosity" about everything that he sees, hears, feels, smells, or touches. Such curiosity opens up new ideas, knowledge, and abilities, even though everyone tells him to stop, with a spanking each time.
This production is a kind of mockery of society that is unable to make changes. Assertive people work toward growth while snobby people just want to dominate others. The show, intended for age 4+ and to all who are intrigued by the question how the little elephant got his trunk, will be performed on Monday, July 10, 2017 in Nikola Đurković Cultural Centre, at 8 p.m.
