    Imagine you could create a new world from absolute nothingness. The kind of world you may dream about, safe, and abounding in surprises and hope. Our hero stands at the very beginning – with imagination and lily-white paper that can become anything. A new world arises from imagination, creativity and playfulness. And since every world has its bright and dark sides, we can expect a great adventure and a struggle for salvation of this frail world. Our friend can only prevail if he demonstrates courage and kindness. We create a world ourselves and it is up to us what it will be like and who will prevail in the world that is our own creation. 

    The multi-genre production combines mime, contemporary dance with elements of acrobatics, puppetry and animation. In the interactive end, we will open our new world to the youngest spectators and invite them to join us in putting the finishing touches to it.

    The performance is without an intermission, and is suitable for children from the age of five to seven.
