Wilderness, a puppet fairy tale both for children and the adults, is about the joy of scaring. It was created by the theater group Odivo and loosely based on the motives of the book Where There Are Wild Things Are by the American illustrator and writer Maurice Sendak. A fairy tale about Max - an ordinary boy with an extraordinary imagination. And about his cat. And the wilderness. And a lot of other things that can fit in one red cart. All
wilderness will be accompanied by live music previously unheard of - vibraphone, guitar and drums. Expect rare puppets made of bicycle parts and various oddly shaped pieces of wood.
