"The universe is not made of atoms, it's made of tiny stories"

Come to The Paradise Theatre this Christmas and experience the sheer magic of Caja's wondertales: travelling to lands far far away and long gone. Eeverything is connected, and even the greatest trial ends well. Bathe in the wisdom that remarkable heroes can be found among the quiet, the young, the old, the foolish and even among wacky human beings, or animals. And breathe in the knowledge that even the bravest among us can be fearful, and stupid. Caja's stories are full of these elements and she invites her listeners, no matter the age, to join her on these wonderful winter journeys. Each show is a compilation of various short stories drawn from Caja's ever expanding repertoire waiting to be to told until you are all comfortably seated.
 
DRAWING PARTY
After the show the children are invited for a little treat and a drawing party. It's an invitation, so no obligation, just fun! This side programme lasts about thirty minutes.
