Premiere 2017
For children 1,5+
Duration 30 minutes
Production FRU-FRU and Hiša otrok in umetnosti


There’s a girl in her room. Lonely, she walks across the room until she sees a green string hanging from her toy box. And at the end of the string is a small wooden horse. All of a sudden, the horse starts to wiggle on its own, and the green string draws an unknown, magical landscape on the wall. The girl finds new objects and toys that come to life in the line drawing on the wall.

The play is a collage of Oton Župančič’s children’s poetry in a contemporary and fresh musical score. Each of the pieces of the collage, with its own story and character based on children’s drawings, creates a complete theater experience for the youngest.
