The Incredible Adventures of Baron Munchausen
August 11 - August 20
The Incredible Adventures of Baron Munchausen (All ages)
Presented by Twisted Dog Theatre
3 esteemed Dora Mavor Moore Awards Nominations for Outstanding Direction, Outstanding Performance by an Individual, and Outstanding Achievement in Design (Projection)
Based on the works by Rudolf Erich Raspe
Adapted and Directed by Svetlana Ozerskaya
Who is Munchausen – “phony baron” or “the most truthful person on earth”? Where is the line between truth and fiction? But is it really that important when you set off on a journey with the most resourceful, courageous and witty traveler who can even take you to the moon!
You’ll need to bring your imagination with you, or you won’t be able to see the scary wolf that the baron faced in the snowy Canadian fields, the African lion or the northern bear. Moreover, the baron won’t be able to get to the moon without your help. The performance uses video and animation, as well as shadow theatre techniques. Little travellers can choose for themselves where to sail with the baron – North or South, and it will affect the story.
