About the performance

The performance Folk Tales is a puppet performance created not only for the youngest audience - there is a lot in it to raise interest also in much older spectators.

It is a re-creation of the folk tale The Rabbit Works for the Fox interlaced with proverbs and old wisdoms, as well as songs following the pattern of traditional tunes performed by means of simple sound instruments. The animals in the performance behave like people: they sleep, they eat, they make coffee, they plant, they till the field, they pick the crops, and they feed the chickens. Some of them are working and persevering, others try to avoid the hard work organising their life in a way that makes others work for them. Who gets to live better? It is up to you to judge.

The Puppet Theatre Nebo has been active since 2001. Their first performances were created for youth and adults, lately however, they are more and more involved in multimedia and experimental projects as well as in performances for children. Since 2003, their productions have been a result of their co-operation with Forum Ljubljana: The Story about Frank, This is Ernest (co-production with Cankarjev dom), Folk Tales (co-production with Mini teater)
