Duration: 40 mins
Ages: 3 years +
Once upon a time there was a dog and a rabbit. They were neighbours. Like many neighbours they often quarrelled, especially about who owned the beautiful tree which stood between their houses, half in the rabbit’s garden and half in the dog’s garden. One day they decided to settle their disagreement once and for all, and race each other. The winner would own the whole tree! But friendships can grow in the most surprising of ways, and true friends are ready to share the things they love the most...
This delightful and elegantly simple adaptation of one of Slovenia’s most popular and best known folk tales is presented by the Ljubljana Puppet Theatre. This company is the principal Slovenian puppetry ensemble, regularly touring its work internationally with great success, as well as each year presenting ten premiers and many hundreds of performances to audiences of over 110,000. This is the Ljubljana Puppet Theatre’s first appearance at the festival.
"An utterly charming production with beautiful puppetry and full of gentle humour and insight" Artistic Director, Puppet Animation Festival
