in the land of finger puppets


o: 3+ (: 60’

We enter the Land of Finger Puppets because of little Goose Liza, a finger puppet who has is lost and can not find her home. Children first look for her home in folk songs at different venues, between finger shadows in different images and behind the curtain of the Big Little Finger Theater.

Fingers explore, caress, tickle, play old finger games and perform fairy tales: Hedgehog and Fox, Little Red Riding Hood, Mojca Pokrajculja, Prince and Princess … Finger-puppets in every way surround kids until they find Liza’s place in the sun, hidden in the fairytale carousel…
