Kakek and the Travellers: World Stories

(6 – 12 yrs)


by Theatre of Entanglement

“We are travellers, have travelled this earth for seven ages, collecting stories. We have nothing but what you see. We have nothing but, you see…we have stories…”

An international group of travellers and one marvellous puppet (named Kakek) tell stories  and sing songs from all corners of the earth. Each story is richly illustrated with physical theatre, shadow play, object theatre and even drawings. Although language is important, it draws also on the imagination skills of children. The performance uses several languages including some Polish, Turkish, Swahili and even Sephardic!
