The play was inspired by dramatic events of 2023 when a town was overrun by the Smok Smog (en. Dragon Smog). The stinkiest kind. At first, the beast dwelled under the ground and no one took notice of it. However, one day the concentration of the reptile's fumes was so high that the authorities issued a decree in which they prohibited leaving houses when the Smok is most active. A group of daredevils aged 6-15 decided not to give in... The play only for those who have nerves of steel! 


Pracownia Sztuczka (Little Art Studio) - is not some poor quality or trick art but art tailored for children. When we create our plays, workshops and installations, we give the children an opportunity to commune with new creative situations. Participation is assumed in Little Art Studio, thus, we put emphasis on interactivity and multisensory integration. We are open to various forms of art, education practices, creators, animators and, most of all, children.
