DESCRIPTION OF THE PERFORMANCE:
All the children at the age of 4 to 8, together with their parents, grandparents, uncles, cousins and aunts, are welcome to see our play! We are going to take you to another world - far away, to the land of imagination, bold ideas and astounding music. At the same time, we promise that every word is going to be understood even by the youngest members of the audience. And the whole show is in English - from the ears to the curly tail.
Can a small creature be a big dreamer? Of course! An even bigger one than the adults would have ever imagined, especially if it is an inquisitive piggy with a funny little button-like snout and an imaginative mind that is not just pink, but multi-coloured like an aurora! This awesome pet knows English and loves fascinating adventures. So one day it comes up with a great idea. It wants to fly into space. Inspired by the story of the famous astronaut dog named Łajka, it plans its intergalactic trip. Unfortunately, everyone around doubts that the mission can succeed and tries to persuade the piggy to stay at home. Will the mission be aborted? Will the flight take place? What does real bravery mean? Where do our dreams come true? You will learn answers to all these questions from our show.
