Next Saturday, FEBRUARY 9TH 2013 at 5pm in Mini teater (Križevniška 1) unforgettable LITTLE SLEEPY STAR by Frane Milčinski – Ježek!
She is a star in the sky that puts children to sleep, leads sailors over the seas and helps the poet find the right rhymes. She has gold long hair and is called Sleepy Star. But because she is often late for work she causes confusion on Earth. The children are crying, the sailors can’t find their ways, the poet does not find the rhyme to the word pot.
Therefore the Moon punishes her by sending her to the Earth with the ability to come back when and if she will prove to be smart enough. After the comet Repatec brings her to Earth Sleepy star finds herself amongst strangers. The road leads her by the fair and into the city where a bandit Ceferin resides. When he finds out that the girl has golden hair he desires this fortune of hers immediately. Due to the goodness of Sleepy Star even the horrible bandit Ceferin’s heart changes from a rock and starts beating and comet is allowed to take Sleepy Star back to the sky.
»Against expectations is also the diversity of the puppets, especially the heroine and her friends, colleague stars in the sky and beside them at least the famous starry mailman Repatec the Comet. They literally glow, shine and fly around thanks to Robert Smolik’s design and ideas and of course excellent animation by Maruša Majer in alternation with Nina Ivanišin, Tadej Pišek and Igor Štamulak. They visually appear completely figurative and sensually abstractive at the same time. Very witty are the puppet solutions and ideas. For example, that the bandit Ceferin literally drops a stone from his heart that then starts beating.« Uroš Smasek, Against all expectations; Večer, 13.12.2012
