The Pinezka Theatre
For kidds from 2 y.o. | duration: about 55 min.
The story of an old Clown who tries unsuccessfully to catch a fish in the sea, but unfortunately instead of fish he fishes out rubbish such as plastic nets, metal cans, plastic bottles, old tyres, etc. Ah! What is it that people don’t throw into the sea? The sea played by the actress sometimes gets in the way, sometimes helps, and sometimes messes about, because the sea is an element and nature which can be unpredictable, threatening, but beautiful at the same time.
A comedy pantomime performance with marionettes and elements of circus art, which is great fun for audiences of all ages. Alongside the laughter, the audience learns not to throw rubbish into the sea and the children help the Sea to clean up.
