monkey puzzle


What happens when a small monkey loses and finds his mum with the help of a butterfly? A lot of unforeseen complications, great adventures and also dangers! Of course the butterfly does not suspect that the mother of the baby monkey looks a lot like her son, given that small butterflies are little hairy caterpillars and bear little resemblance with their colourful flying parents.

The show provides an excellent starting point for a conversation, what happens if a child is lost, and how caterpillar becomes a butterfly. It ranked at the 6th Biennial of Puppetry Artists of Slovenia in Maribor 2011, and at international puppet festival in Wels, Austria, on March 2012.
