OPENING OF THE FESTIVAL MINI SUMMER

LOCATION: KRIŽEVNIŠKA ULICA

SPHERE, street performance

Author and performer: Andrej Tomše
Steet performance: 2+
Duration: 25'

A man with a chrystal sphere, a hat, and a walkin stick. He look familiar but you surely haven't seen anything alike. He doesn't speek but you'll understand him. His juggling is magical, his interaction with the audience is playful and witty. He eats bannanas and sometimes he offers them to the audience. He reminds us of a skilful clown. Someone once said that his performance is like a tender magic. Appropriate for people of any age.
After the performance the playful juggler will have a workshop for children.

There is a star in the skies that puts children to sleep, leads sailors over the seas and helps the poet find the right rhymes. She has golden long hair and is called Little Sleepy Star because she is often late for work and that causes confusion on Earth. This is why the Moon punishes her by sending her to the Earth where she finds herself amongst strangers. The road leads her by the fair, into the city, and to the bandit Ceferin who has a stone in place of the heart. When Cerefin finds out that the girl has golden hair he wants to steal it from her. But the sincere goodness of Little Sleepy Star turns his stone to a beating heart. And then the Moon lets Little Sleepy Star return to the skies. This is a fairytale with a universal message – we can overcome evil with kindness and goodness, pure thought and love.

A charming Swedish story about by Pernilla Stalfelt finally in Slovenian theatre for children! The story funnily and humorously and with no hesitation or taboos explains the subject that incredibly interests and amuses children. Dr. Poop and his assistant take us through the Poop's adventures handling the subject of poop and pooping very thoroughly and with limitless humour. They observe its shape, and compare its structure and colour, and they remind us what happens when we have diarrhoea or constipation.  Together with children they discover different names for different kinds of poop. They also teach children that poop can be a very useful fertilizer and that in Africa people even use pooh to build houses!

Daddy is big and strong and he can do anything, even magic! But, look, he’s afraid of foreigners! His daughter finds this odd, so she comes up with an idea to help her smart daddy conquer fear of foreigners. Perhaps her Tanzanian friend’s birthday is a great opportunity? What do we know about children’s lives in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan …? Are parents and teachers really afraid of children? We should get to know new cultures, not reject them. Rejection only reflects our ignorance and xenophobia. Fear of the different only paralyses us, meeting and accepting our differences makes us richer.

A humorous, yet provocative handling of a well-known biblical story by Ulrich Hub. Our story starts just before the flood myth. The news of a great flood destroying the world reaches two surprised penguins. Like with all the other animals only two of them can embark on Noah's Ark, yet they decide to sneak in their friend, a third penguin hidden in a suitcase. An adventure follows and the penguins try to cover the fare dodger! This creative twist of the classical biblical story encourages the audience to ask themselves about God, life and death, good and evil, friendship, solidarity, and about right and wrong.
