Here we have another year that will be marked by the most wonderful summer festival in Europe, and quite certainly even wider. Traditionally, from July 1 - 12, Kotor Festival of Theatre for Children gathers all the theater viewers and connoisseurs, both big and small, and takes them to an unforgettable adventure through the town of Kotor.
This year we have a mission to, in addition to Kotor, Europe, world and universe, conquer the Moon too with our imagination, and on this trip Zadar Puppet Theater from Croatia, will join us in Kotor, again this year.
Based on the motifs from a popular story, Can’t Please the Whole World speaks about a desire to please people around us, and then the whole world, in order to get their affection, confirmation of righteousness, and create the feeling of acceptance, which leads to suppression and abandonment of our own desires and opinions, and finally even our own personalities. In this time, where we are attacked by aggressive regulations from all over – about how to look, how to behave, how to think, spend time, which brand of yogurt to take – that we tend to meet in order to – by others’ parameters – achieve ourselves, be successful and happy, within the required shape and pattern and tapped on the shoulder, it is important to remind ourselves to which extent we deny ourselves. Since after all, whatever we do, we can’t please the whole world. Or can we?
The show is directed by Ana Prolić, Juraj Aras, acting as assistant director, and performed by: Juraj Aras, Sanja Zalović, Dominik Karakašić, Irena Bausović, Anđela Ćurković Petković, Tamara Šoletić, Radojka Kozulić and Robert Košta.
