About the event
The musicians of the play are wandering artists almost like street buskers. They settle on the main square of the town, singing songs and collecting money for food. Present in this tuneful company are the four original animals of the fairytale, the donkey, dog, cat and rooster, but there is a goose with their band as well. Last, but not least, a stork joins the group, carrying a bundle with a baby in it, a new-born that has to be delivered to its mother, Madame Europe, a task the whole group of animals agrees to undertake. The baby is black and Madame Europe proves to be a highly symbolic name as the show unfolds. She lives on Hospitality Street, a road which is not easy to find in the old world.
The show will be performed by Teatro due Mondi and children as the final of two two-week long workshops at SFO at both Ambjørnrød and Cicignon Primary School.
