Videk's New Shirt

o: 2+ (: 35'

Videk lives in a big family with four older brothers and d sisters and a very busy mother! In fact, his mother is so busy, she doesn’t even have time to make him a new shirt. One day, Videk rips his old, hand-me-down shirt — and some friends from Nature come to his rescue.  A sheep gives him wool, a bush combs the wool with its thorns, and a spider weaves fabric — teaching an important lesson about friendship and harmony.

Through the show children will find out about the whole process of weaving and the creation of cloth. Performance is a combination of acting, puppeteering and live music unveiling the magic world of objects which come to life.
